President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to overhaul the education sector if he is re-elected as president in 2019, and as part of efforts to do so, he says his administration will remodel 10,000 schools every year.
The president said this on Sunday at an event tagged ‘The Next Level’, to mark the launch of his campaign ahead of the election.
“PERHAPS OUR BIGGEST AMBITION YET, IS THE OVERHAUL OF OUR EDUCATION SECTOR. EVERY CHILD COUNTS AND WHATEVER IT TAKES TO PREPARE OUR TEACHERS’ CURRICULUM AND CLASSROOMS TO ATTAIN THE RIGHT EDUCATIONAL GOALS TO GROW OUR COUNTRY, WILL BE DONE.
“WE WILL REMODEL 10,000 SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR AND RETRAIN OUR TEACHERS TO IMPART SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS AND MATHEMATICS USING CODING, ANIMATION IN THE CURRICULUM”.
Speaking further, the President promised to intensify the anti-graft war, to bring an end to the menace and ensure that the nation’s resources are maximized.
He also believes the efforts, have put the administration in good stead to build a better Nigeria.
“FOUR YEARS AGO, WE PROMISED NIGERIANS REAL CHANGE IN WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT. NIGERIANS SENT A CLEAR MESSAGE IN THE LAST ELECTION AND OUR PLATFORM OFFERED A NEW AMBITIOUS PLAN FOR A SECURE, PROSPEROUS AND CORRUPTION-FREE COUNTRY.
“WE HAVE WORKED HARD TO FULFIL OUR PROMISES AND WHILE THE ROAD MAY HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT OVER THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS, WE HAVE LAID A FOUNDATION FOR A STRONG, STABLE AND PROSPEROUS COUNTRY FOR THE MAJORITY OF OUR PEOPLE.
“FOUNDATIONAL WORK IS NOT OFTEN VISIBLE, NEITHER IS IT GLAMOROUS BUT IT IS VITAL TO ACHIEVING THE KIND OF COUNTRY WE DESIRE.
“JUDGING BY THE DEPTHS OF DECAY, DETERIORATION AND DESPAIR THAT NIGERIA HAS SANK INTO, WE ARE CERTAIN THAT THESE PAST FEW YEARS HAVE PUT US IN GOOD STEAD TO PRESS ON THE NEXT LEVEL OF BUILDING AN EVEN STRONGER NATION FOR OUR PEOPLE.”
