Minister of Education, Prof Tahir Mamman, has received the Education Roadmap to address the problems in the sector and pledged to ensure that basic, secondary and tertiary education certificates are valued.
The minister, who stated this while receiving the report on the Education Roadmap by the Committee members in Abuja, said they are also unhappy Nigerians because Nigeria has not been able to achieve what it is supposed to in the last three years.
“I am very angry about that. Some of us have benefitted from what is good and now we have been countering what is bad. Now that we have this opportunity there is no reason why we cannot translate this into something very positive to achieve what we have been crying and yarning for all these years,” he said.
The Minister decried the failure to achieve previous roadmaps, saying, “A lot of roadmaps has come and gone but this is not going to be the same, this is not the time to bury policies in files, it’s time to see all policies on ground.
“Days of talking is over we should now act and do what is right.”
