The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) says a person can’t succeed outside his personal educational qualification, adding that anybody who misses education has missed everything.

Buhari also stated that Nigerian parents are making sacrifices to ensure that their children get educated.

The President said this during a panel discussion on Thursday at the Global Education Summit in London.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, revealed this in a statement titled, ‘Nigerians Acutely Aware of Priority of Education, President Buhari Tells Global Education Summit’.

Buhari said the size and population of Nigeria are challenges for any administration, but despite this, the government and people realise that education is the starting point for success.

He added that no Nigerian parent jokes with education, as they know that if their children or wards missed the opportunity of being educated, they have missed a lot.

“You can’t succeed outside your educational qualification. Anybody who missed education has missed everything. Nigerians are acutely aware of the priority of education, and parents are making sacrifices to ensure that their children and wards get educated.”

Also on the panel were Presidents Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Faure Gnassingbe of Togo, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi.

Each President spoke on the peculiarities of the education sector of his country, and how budgetary allocations would be increased to ameliorate the situation.

They all raised their hands as a sign of commitment to that resolution.

On Wednesday, Buhari had committed to raising the budget for education by 50 per cent in the next two years, and the country would attain a 100 per cent increase by 2025.
