Kogi commissioner urges Nigerians to embrace vocational education
Kogi State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Rosemary Ojochenemi Osikoya, has advised Nigerians to de-emphasise the higher premium usually placed on formal education to get degrees, as it is no longer valid based on the current economic realities.
Osikoya, who spoke during the maiden matriculation of new intakes into the Nigeria-Korea Friendship Institute in Lokoja yesterday, said emphasis should be shifted to vocational education to get equipped with skills and also have opportunity to meet daily needs and make impact on the society.
She said it is the major drawback that has set the Nigerian economy in the backwaters.
