Illiteracy Root Cause Of Boko Haram —Duke

boko-haram-3Former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, has attributed the current Boko Haram menace in the country to lack of quality education.

He, therefore, urged the government to partner those who could raise educational standards in schools

In his address delivered at the annual luncheon and merit award ceremony of the Government College, Ibadan, on Wednesday, Duke said the fallen standard in the educational system had left Nigeria with a bleak future.

He said, “Sixty-seven per cent of school age children in Borno State are currently out of school. This is the root of the Boko Haram problem facing the country.

“Something must be done urgently about the educational system; if not, the future is very bleak for our country.”
