Many Nigerian graduates cannot read or write-Minister,Adamu Adamu says

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has lamented over the fallen standard of education in the country.

The minister who spoke in Yola, Adamawa State, during the official commissioning of completed projects in the college, said a number of graduates can neither read nor write in a tolerable manner.

Adamu, who was represented by the Director of Tertiary Education in the Federal Ministry of Education, Hajia Rakiya Gambo Iliyasu said the situation was a cause for concern, adding that students and teachers need to sit up and face their tasks squarely if the situation is to be reversed.

Some graduates of tertiary institutions across the country cannot read or write applications,” he said.

He further stated that students and even graduates had been found to be unable to write one full sentence without multiple corrections being made.

The minister urged all stakeholders in the education sector to sit up to ensure that the decline in the value of education is bridged within the shortest time possible.
