In commemoration of this year’s World Teachers’ Day, a coalition of support groups for Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has slammed the the federal government for allegedly scamming Nigerian students over the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.
Delivering a keynote address Wednesday in Abuja, the national president of the Association of Diction Coaches of Nigeria (ADCN), Peter Piper, said Nigerian students are been scammed of their rights and they are given certification in place of education.
He said: “We’ve been scammed in the name of schooling, they give certification in place of education, no any form of acquisition of knowledge and skills, can you imagine keeping students for over 7 months in the name of ASUU strike.
“This is the 21st Century and we need to overhaul our educational system in this new Nigeria.
We need to reform and change our curriculum in the educational system. We need to rethink education, new set of people in the ministry of education, if we want to have a new Nigeria, we need to start with the teachers, remember that the change begins with you.”
