In celebration of literacy day, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has declared his plan to reform and invest in education.
The former Vice President said this on Thursday through his social media platform declaring thag Nigeria’s educational system is broken as well as other sectors of our national life.
“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.
To this end, I plan a reform and massive investment in education.”
Alhaji Atiku vowed that he will collaborate with the state government to make sure that more attention is placed on early education.
“On this International Literacy Day, I pledge that under my watch and in collaboration with state governments, more attention will be placed on early education that guarantees the ability to read and write.”
Recall that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has been on an indefinite strike since February over a disagreement regarding the funding of Institutions and payment of salaries with the Federal Government.
