Concerned by the crises facing the country’s education sector, the Nigerian Army Education Corps (NAEC), is planning a summit that would proffer solutions for the sector.

Speaking to journalists in Lagos, on the forthcoming education summit billed to hold on November 4 to 8, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Commander of the NAEC, Brigadier General Sunday Adebayo, expressed concern over the standard of education in the country, stating that the Nigerian Army, as an integral part of the larger society, cannot claim to be unaware of the problems confronting the education sector.

Tagged: ‘Education Sector Development in Nigeria: Tackling Contemporary Challenges’, Adebayo said the Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio; the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Azubuike Ihejirika and Education Minister, Nyesom Wike are among guests that will grace the occasion.

“It is a fact that the quality of the contribution made by a person is dependent on the quality of education the person possesses. Graduates from the university get enlisted into the Nigerian Army. It is the quality of education they received that they will contribute to the authority.

“The ultimate aim of the summit would be to compile these series of lectures into a book that will serve both as a reference material and a veritable guide for education stakeholders.

“Topics such as rethinking security education in a world of asymmetric warfare; an appraisal of the 6-3-3-4 Nigerian education system for global competitiveness; emotional intelligence: an emerging trend in educational management; as well as quality assurance in the Nigerian education system: matters arising, are among issues to be treated,” Adebayo said.
