The Federal Government will soon launch a new education strategy to serve as a guiding framework for transforming the sector.
According to the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, who was speaking at the 32nd combined convocation of the Kaduna Polytechnic, the strategy would inspire efforts to bring the capacity of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems to levels where they could respond to multiple demands.
Adamu described education as “a veritable tool for the growth and development of any nation,’’ adding that all hands must be on deck for the country to be rated high in the comity of nations.
The minister, represented by the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Masa’udu Kazaure, called on well-meaning Nigerians, the private sector and non-governmental organisations to support the government in funding the sector.
The minister equally urged the graduates to contribute their quota in stirring the country in the right direction and place it on the shoes of excellence in technology, high morals and unquestionable integrity.
