Nigeria’s academic problem can still be resolved using the UNESCO recommendation, according to Arogbofa

Posted by

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) advice on education has been urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to disregard.

This was Bashorun Seinde Arogbofa’s opinion on Sunday when he opened an administrative building and a block of science labs at Community Comprehensive High School, Ikaram-Akoko, which had been built at the request of the school’s former students association. Bashorun Seinde Arogbofa is a former national secretary of the Yoruba sociocultural group, Afenifere.

He thought it was concerning how quickly the nation’s educational standards and quality were declining as a result of poor planning and insufficient funding.

According to him, the crisis in the education sector won’t be resolved until the government at all levels follows the recommendations to allocate 15% of the total annual budget to education.

The educationist also emphasized that the government must move quickly to implement the proposal to create a Commission for Secondary School Education in the nation, arguing that it will strengthen the management of Post-Primary Education and raise the quality and standard of Education from the Elementary Level Upward.

Bashorun Arogbofa praised the Old Students Association for supporting the school, which is led by Barrister Olurotimi Williams-Daudu, the Chief Registrar of the National Industrial Court. He emphasized that it had become obvious that the government cannot address the infrastructure and equipment shortages in public schools on its own.

During the event, Barrister Williams-Daudu, who was represented by his wife, Dr. Funmilola Williams-Daudu, praised all of the old students association’s members for their eagerness and willingness to participate in the endeavor.
