by Agency Reporter

The newly elected National President, National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS), Mr. Yinka Gbadebo, on Wednesday decried the rot in the education sector of the country.

Gbadebo, who observed this in a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria) in Lagos, added that the sector needed a `serious revolution` to correct all abnormalities.

“There is an urgent need for a declaration of an emergency in the education sector, — so as to revamp it and have qualitative education, “ he said.

He lamented that both federal and state governments have not been giving the sector enough attention over the years.

The NANS president said the governments had been depriving higher institutions of funds, thereby causing dearth of lecturers.

“Qualified manpower to administer our educational institutions have left the country due to poor remuneration and inadequate research funds, “ he said.

Gbadebo, however, called on all stakeholders, including Vice-Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts, to rally round government to revamp the sector.
