The United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, stated that Nigeria has lost its chances of achieving quality education.
Saadhna Panday-Soobrayan, the international agency’s representative announced this on June 9, at the Transforming Education Summit organised by the National Universities Commission in Abuja.
Soobrayan further noted that the COVID19 pandemic worsened the fragility of Nigeria’s education systems.
“The pandemic exacerbated the fragility of the country’s education systems which was already struggling with poor access to quality learning and low resiliency to shock.”
The system, Sobrayan viewed, had struggled with poor access to quality learning.
Hence, it has lost the Sustainable Development Goal 4 which is quality education.
