Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, admitted he failed in his official duties as he could not deal with several challenges that drastically affected the educational system in the last few years.
Adamu, while speaking on Thursday at the 66th National Council on Education (NCE) in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja reflected on the challenges he faced as Education Minister, having occupied the office longer than any other person.
The Minister highlighted that, from out-of-school children, which has increased during his time in office, to challenges of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other challenges bedevilling the tertiary education system, he could not provide viable solutions.
Adamu, however, accused the state’s ministries of education of adding to the factors that aided his failure as a Minister.
