A call to Action to increase Access to Education in Nigeria

On Jan 24, Nigeria joined the rest of the world to commemorate the International Day of Education with several symposiums and social media activities organised by both political and non-political actors with a pledge to improve the educational system of the country.

Judging by the present statistics of out of school children in Nigeria, there is a heightened need for the country to increase its funding to get all children in school and at least through to secondary school. It is estimated that the gross enrollment rate decreased from 85% to 45% for primary to secondary school transition in Nigeria.
