Dilapidated public schools

This is to express my view on the poor state of the in the country. For public schools, pragmatic policies and programmes should be formulated and implemented before they collapse.

We all know how other countries around the world improve their to improve their people and develop their economies. But, the in Nigeria is pathetic as 80% of our public schools are in dire need of modern .

Although, Nigeria budgets billions of naira for such but there is nothing to show for it. The buildings of most of our secondary schools lasted for years, the in and out got damaged, no practical materials for external exams and many more need to be considered.
