Minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has revealed that Katsina has the second highest number of out-of-school children in Nigeria.

He revealed this on Monday in Katsina during the inauguration of the Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA), a World Bank-assisted project.

 

The minster stated that poor standards of education could affect the country’s ability to compete in the 21st century global economy.

 

Nwajiuba, however, noted that the World Bank project will improve literacy and the boost the standards of education in the state.

 

“Education is critical for national development as it is the only way we can produce adequate manpower to run the country,” he said.

 

“For any country to develop, it must have a well-equipped education system that prepares its people with adequate knowledge to enable them take competitive advantage in the 21st century world economy.

 

“It is in light of this that we are here to launch BESDA in Katsina state. It is a programme that will ensure better life for all our children, and the cardinal objective is to increase equitable access, improve literacy and strengthen accountability for results at the basic education level.

 

“The 17 states that are the focus of this are drawn from seven in the north-west, six in the north-east and one each from each of the other geo-political zones.

 

“Katsina state is the second highest in ranking of out-of-school children in Nigeria and this is worrisome to all of us. There is much to fear if a single child is out of school not to talk about the millions of children that we are talking about in Nigeria.”

  3. Nollywood actress and DG of ROK Studios, Mary Remmy Njoku has waded into the controversy surrounding blacklisting of actresses Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing Sunday by Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN).

    CLIMAXTREND had reported that TAMPAN in its notice suspending Iyabo Ojo, Nkechi Blessing accused the actresses of “reckless accusations, abuses and embarrassment of our sector“.

    The communique noted that an offence against one is an offence against all, adding that the association will no longer tolerate “infringements”.

    The TAMPAN BoT further declared that its action against Iyabo Ojo does not mean it supports acts of criminal behaviour in whatever guise.

    But, Njoku in an Instagram post, reacting to the ban, said that there was nothing like overreaction when there are allegations of rape or child molestation.

    Mary expressed disappointment in TAMPAN.

    She commended the actresses for using their platforms to speak up against such acts.

    Her post read,

    “Where there are allegations of rape or child molestation there is no such thing as overreaction. Today in Nigeria I don’t believe we are reacting enough.

    “I stand with and want to thank these two strong women who have used their time and platforms to speak up against it. You both are my crush today and always.”
