Stakeholders in Nigeria’s education sector have urged the Federal Government to arrest the prevailing decadence in the sector, thereby saving the future of country
The stakeholders, including educationists and parents, made the appeal last weekend during the first graduation ceremony of Showers International High School, Port Harcourt.
While addressing the audience, the Medical Director of Rehoboth Specialist Hospital, Dr. Aniekan Ekere, said that there is need to stop the slide if the country must take its pride of place in the comity of nations.
He added that the present situation in the education sector has changed as the country’s brilliant lecturers and students now seek education and greener pastures overseas.
The medical expert, who frowned at the high number of illiterate persons in Nigeria, described the development as a slap on the face of an oil producing nation.
