Minister of Education worry as Nigerian graduates can’t read or write

“Nigerian graduates can’t read or write” Minister of Education expresses worry

Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has expressed concern about the decline in the standard of education in the country.

Speaking in Yola, Adamawa State, during the official commissioning of completed projects in the college, the Minister said a number of graduates can neither read nor write in a commendable manner.

The minister who was represented by the Director of Tertiary Education in the Federal Ministry of Education, Hajia Rakiya Gambo Iliyasu said the situation was a cause for concern, adding that students and teachers need to sit up and face their tasks squarely if the situation is to be reversed.

In his words, “Some graduates of tertiary institutions across the country cannot read or write applications”.

According to him, students and even graduates had been found to be unable to write one full sentence without multiple corrections needing to be made.

However, the minister urged all stakeholders in the education sector to sit up to ensure that something is urgently done about the decline in the value of education in the country within the shortest time possible.
