The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), according to report, has cried out over the poor state of education in Nigeria.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association, Mr. Adeyemi Azeez, disclosed the alarming rate of Nigerian education in a statement in Abuja over the weekend.
The PRO called on all governors of the states to immediately set up visitation panels to all tertiary institutions which include Universities, Polytechnics and Collges of Education across the country.
Azeez noted that it was imperative to make the remark about Nigeria’s educational sector after a general overview from all the states.
“As it is obvious that only a sincere, dedicated and purpose driven government at states level can bring a clear repositioning to the education sector.
“NANS calls on all governors of states to as a matter of urgency and necessity, set up visitation panel to all higher institutions of learning.
“This will avail the government with detailed state of each campus and proffer realistically workable solutions to address the challenges,” Azeez stated.
NANS PRO also noted that the National President of the student association, Mr. Danielson Akpan described as disheartening, a situation where education that was free and accessible in the days of today’s leaders, is now unaffordable to the sons and daughters of poor parents and guardians.
Azeez, however, commended the governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun for declaring a state of emergency in the education sector of the state, during his inauguration speech on May 29, 2019.
