Our country’s educational institutions are clearly not providing quality learning, our teachers need to be taught. The steady decline of education in Nigeria is a reflection of our country’s relegation of education to the background of national essentialities. That is where the change must begin. Teachers are important—as important as senators and doctors, they indeed determine the quality of senators and doctors. And so the entire country stands to suffer the effects of this neglect in future. Nigeria must once again make education a priority, we must return to the basics.
