Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) argues that a person can’t achieve until they have a personal educational degree, and that anyone who doesn’t have one has missed out on everything.
Nigerian parents, according to Buhari, are willing to make sacrifices to guarantee that their children receive an education.
This was said by the President during a panel discussion at the Global Education Summit in London on Thursday.
In a statement headlined, ‘Nigerians Acutely Aware of Education Priority, President Buhari Tells Global Education Summit,’ Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this.
The size and population of Nigeria, according to Buhari, provide problems for any administration, but the government and people recognize that education is the foundation for success.
He went on to say that no Nigerian parent makes light of education because they understand that if their children or wards are not educated, they are missing out on a lot.
“You can’t succeed outside your educational qualification. Anybody who missed education has missed everything. Nigerians are acutely aware of the priority of education, and parents are making sacrifices to ensure that their children and wards get educated.”
Presidents Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Faure Gnassingbe of Togo, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi were also on the panel.
Each President discussed the unique characteristics of his country’s education system and how financial allocations will be raised to help alleviate the issue.
As a demonstration of devotion to that resolution, they all raised their hands.
On Wednesday, Buhari stated that the country’s education budget will be increased by 50% in the following two years, with a total rise of 100% by 2025.
