Stakeholders seek better deal for education
Stakeholders have called on the three tiers government to immediately reform public education to serve its function as bedrock of Nigeria’s development.
Speaking at an event to mark the 2019 International Youth Day in Abuja, the stakeholders, comprising civil societies and other players in the sector, called for the protection of the rights of youths.
Osai Ojigho of Amnesty International sought safeguard against violation of the rights of the youth to freedom, empowerment and education.
Dedicating the event to those whose rights had been violated for speaking out against injustice, she reminded government that there were over 10 million out-of-school children across the federation.
The conflict in the North East, Ojigho pointed out, was an offshoot of government’s failure to provide free and qualitative education for kids in the region.
