A lecturer at the Kwara State College of Education, Oro, Mr Musbau Abdulkareem has called on the Government to quickly intervene in the declining standard of education and invest more in the  sector.

Abdulkareem, who made the call in Ilorin on Wednesday while speaking with our reporter said government at all levels must intervene to rescue the situation.

The Head of Department (HOD), Political Science said education sector in the country was gradually losing its value.

“Government at all levels must invest heavily in the sector. This is the time for the leaders to pay special attention to education sector for the sake of the children and their future.

“Nigeria leaders must rank education project as first on their priority list rather than investing in mundane projects that add no value to the future of Nigerian children.

“Public schools are nothing to write home about as most buildings are dilapidated. No teachers to teach the students and the available ones are below average.

“Even the higher institutions are short of facilities and the standard keep falling every day. The teachers and lecturers are not motivated as they are deprived of their entitlements as and when due.

“Government must start taking education serious and stop handling it with levity, he said.

According to him, education is the bedrock of any great nation and deserve radical action from the leaders.

The lecturer, however, advised lawmakers, state governors and other concern citizens to see education as a ‘lifeline’ of the nation.
