Govt urged to declare state of emergency in education

Issa Aremu

Governments at all levels have been advised to urgently declare a state of emergency in the country’s education sector, ROYAL NEWS has gathered.
The Vice President, Industrial Global Union, Comrade Issa Aremu on Sunday noted that, “it is saddened to see public schools in a state of disrepair and near abandonment.”

 

He further stressed the need to stop falling quality, incoherent curriculum, examination malpractices, poor funding, dilapidated structures and abysmally poor sector management  in the education sector.

             
Aremu who spoke at an annual lecture organized by the Alumni Association of Ilorin Grammar School also urged government at all levels to adequately pay teachers, the real drivers of education and enhance their status.
 
         
The labour union activist who is an alumnus of the school frowned at the government for not being able to maintain public schools, pointing out that most of the Nigerian leaders passed through public schools.
 
He said: “Nigeria has demonstrated significant commitment to the great task of meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with respect to achieving universal primary education; today we must demand for well motivated and productive teachers which must start with the restoration of the age long dignity of teaching profession. “Teaching is the oldest profession that teaches all other profession.” 

He therefore stressed the need to restore the status and dignity of Nigerian teachers, who under intolerable conditions are expected to build and sustain a knowledge society.
