Simi Faults Nigeria’s Current Education System
Nigerian music heartthrob, Simi has opined that the current Nigerian education system has killed lots of talents as it has promoted the belief that people can only succeed by following a certain path.
The “Joromo” hitmaker who faulted the Nigerian education system took to Twitter to express her thoughts.
“I feel like the current method of education is faulty. People have different strengths but we were raised to believe only certain talents or career paths can bring you success. So we see a lot of potential and ideas dying cos they were born to the right ppl in the wrong climate.”
Simi further added that the rot in the education system should not be put solely on the teachers but also the inadequacy of the system to cater to the diversity of humankind. She wrote,
“So the problem is not just the incompetent teachers – It’s sometimes the misplacement of priorities. The inadequacy of the educational system to cater to the diversity of the humankind.”
The award-winning entertainer’s post is coming in the wake of the Joint Administration Matriculation Board (JAMB) approving 160 as the cut-off mark for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The decision was made at a meeting held in Osun State, Southwest Nigeria.
Simi has been vocal about certain social issues as she recently called out internet fraudsters known as Yahoo Boys. In her call-out, she asked them to stop listening to the music of Nigerian artists as they do not need their support while adding that the cybercriminals bring shame and disrepute to Nigeria as a country.
