Concerned about the parlous state of education sector of the Nigerian economy in recent times, Malam Adamu Adamu, Honourable Minister for Education, has also condemned the continuous fall in the standard of education in the country.

The Minister disclosed this in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, during the official commissioning of completed projects in the college, The Nation report said.

Represented on the occasion by Hajia Rakiya Iliyasu, Director of Tertiary Education in the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja, FCT, Adamu lamented a situation in which graduates of tertiary institutions of learning could neither read nor write in a fair manner.

The situation, he submitted, is a cause for concern as students and teachers need to sit up and face their tasks squarely if the case is to be reversed.

The Minister stated: “Some graduates of tertiary institutions across the country cannot read or write applications.”

According to him, students and even graduates are unable to write one full sentence (in English language) without some corrections to be made.

Adamu urged all stakeholders in the country’s education sector to sit up to ensure that the decline in the value of education is bridged within the shortest time possible.

The Minister commissioned six completed projects during the ceremony at the FCE main campus in Yola.

The projects include a computer Information and Communication Technology Centre, sports centre, a centre for early childhood education, and an undergraduate studies complex among others.
