Why Jonathans Almajiri school programme failed Education minister, Adamu
To ensure access to quality basic education for the Nigerian child, the June 12 presidential declaration on the enforcement of free and compulsory basic education for the first nine years of schooling underscored Nigerias commitment to achieving Universal Basic Education (UBE) as enshrined in the UBE Act of 2004, Adamu said.
Education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its future. It is a powerful agent of change which improves health, livelihoods, contributes to social stability and drives long-term economic growth.
The return on investment in education is very high. Therefore, there must be no compromise on quality, he added.
