The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, said the lingering security challenge in Nigeria had weakened the country’s education system.
The minister said the insecurity in the country also contributed to the rising number of out-of-school children today.
He disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja during the ministerial session of the 66th National Council on Education (NCE).
In the event themed ‘Strengthening of Security and Safety in Nigerian Schools for the Achievement of Education 2030 Agenda, Adamu said the issue would soon be addressed.
He added that President Buhari’s administration was working tirelessly to reduce the number of out-of-school children and the illiteracy level in the country.
He said, “I’d like to call on all states to rise up to their responsibilities and provide a safe and secure learning environment for both students and teachers.”
Furthermore, the education minister also said that all schools must be safe and secure at all costs.
