      The traditional education began from childhood with and the immediate members of the family being the teachers, as the child explores his environment and acquires the language to describe the phenomena around him. The objects of the traditional education was the total development of the child, he is taught to develop his physical prowess through organized competitions such as essays, project compilations and skills in writing on profession techniques. He learns the various traditions and cultures of his profession and training in citizenship, through communiqué activities.

      Technical and vocational educational education had limited objective of the earliest

      providers of western education in Nigeria, as discovered as a major weak point in the

      education system, as far as the colonial government. Indeed if the old contemptuous

      attitude of Nigerian to vocational education to vocational education still exist, we would

      see that any government policy aimed at the exclusive state control and delivery of education whether well motivated or populist propaganda to rake in votes is not only bound to fail, but is a sure route to keeping Nigerian educationally and economically underdeveloped. We need to accept the principle that any viable progressive and responsive education system must rest on the tripod comprising the tripod comprising of the government, the private sector, the parents and students. This would identify specific arrears of cooperation and collaboration among the key plays in the education of the nation so that the highly commendable objectives set out in the national policy on education could be achieved.

      An educated public is an income generating public and that income translates quickly to consumption and visible markets. Peaceful and participatory community’s leaders and distinguished gents are a product of effective education. Competitive advantage at this time is a supreme product of access to knowledge of intellectual inputs, knowledge based inputs, and hence of education. Investment flows to communities that are known to have an educated labour force, good schools where good order prevails. Education lends itself to the creation of an environment that is good for business, increasingly recommended, realizing education is not only good for business but is big business.

      A motive for the declaration of new commitments to the process of opening new windows for cooperation that will facilitate a reconciled vision of the education for all plans of action, developing a better appreciation on issues at stake
