As far as I am concerned, the education sector has no structure. I read an article that Julius Berger visited the president and lamented how skilled workers were lacking in the country, only for President Buhari to say he will call minister of works to revitalize the vocational school in Lagos; school that does not even exist.

Instead of calling minister of education, he said minister of works. A country that does not lay emphasis on education is like a sinking ship.

We keep producing half-baked graduates. Even the recent sack of 13 VCs’ is politically-motivated. How can you remove the VC of the National Open University of Nigeria, a man who has transformed the institution? If there is a structure such will not happen.
