FG committed to transformation of Nigeria’s education sector – Sen. Barau 

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Barau Jibrin, has reiterated the commitment of the federal government towards the transformation of the education sector for rapid development in the country.

Senator Barau stated this Monday when he hosted the newly inaugurated leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in his office at the National Assembly, Abuja.  

Describing education as the bedrock of development, he said for Nigeria to get it right, the challenges facing the education sector must be properly addressed.

The good news, according to Senator Barau, was that the present administration under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully committed to addressing the challenges facing the country.

“From the president to all of us in government, we are doing our best to take our tertiary education sector to a higher level. But that cannot be achieved  without your cooperation. You must key into whatever we are doing before you can be able to get to where you want to. On our part, we are working tirelessly to come up with legislation to support the executive to address the challenges facing the country.

“Your wonderful pedigree made you to be trusted and elected by over 40 million students in the country. For us, what we need to do is to give you the necessary assistance so that you can have the most conducive atmosphere to operate.

“I am here for you and my doors are always open to support you in your operation so that the students of the country can have a conducive learning atmosphere,” he said.

Earlier, the NANS president, Comrade Lucky Emonefe, described Senator Barau as an inspiration and role model to Nigerian students.
