President Muhammadu Buhari says nobody can succeed outside their educational qualification, so his administration is committed to raising the budget for education by 50 per cent in the next two years.
The President said this while on Thursday during a panel session at the global education summit, in London.
At the summit, Buhari noted that the population of the country is a challenge for any administration; but despite this, the government and people have realised that education is the starting point for success.
“You can’t succeed outside your educational qualification. Anybody who missed education has missed everything. Nigerians are acutely aware of the priority of education, and parents are making sacrifices to ensure that their children and wards get educated,” Buhari said.
On the panel with Buhari were Presidents Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Faure Gnassingbe of Togo, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi
