Education: S/East govs doing better than FG – Kukah

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah, has commended the governors of the South East states for giving priority to education in spite of the economic challenges.

Kukah made the commendation at Nwa­for Orizu College of Education, Nsugbe, Anambra on Thursday while delivering its 17th convocation lecture.

Kukah, who was rep­resented by Prof Peter Tanko, spoke on ‘Teach­ing the Teacher: Con­temporary challenges and prospects of teacher education in Nigeria’.

He decried the poor budget allocation to education at the federal level, noting that the country could not think of meaningful develop­ment without allocating at least 23 per cent of its budget to education.

Kukah also urged northern leaders to pay more attention to the education sector, stress­ing that lack of basic infrastructure had dislo­cated functional educa­tion in the country.
