According to the PDP presidential flag bearer, it is regrettable that Nigeria’s education system is as broken as every other sector of our national life.
“To this end, I plan a reform and massive investment in education,” he added.
Regrettably, our education system is as broken as every other sector of our national life. There is a nexus between development and literacy—however, our current literacy level cannot drive the envisaged level of development.
Atiku pledged that under his watch and in collaboration with state governments, more attention will be placed on early education that guarantees the ability to read and write.
