Adamu’s masterstroke

For instance, though those who know debunked the well-circulated lie of UNESCO giving a 26% benchmark of national budget for education,  it was recommended that the Federal Government should henceforth commit not less than 15 % of annual budget to education and encourage other levels of Government to do so with the Education Bank revitalised. It was also recommended that the adoption and implementation of the Teachers Salary Scale should be given priority while teachers should be paid on a “first-line charge” basis with scholarships awarded to qualified teachers for in-service training.

With follow-up activities mapped out with a view to ensuring that the gains of the retreat are institutionalised across levels, it goes without saying that this masterstroke of a goal-driven and target-oriented retreat portends a better and brighter future for the critical education sector in Nigeria.
