Nigeria: Insurers blame Nigeria’s problem on mismanagement of education system

Insurance industry operators in the country have observed that the mismanagement of the Nigerian education system was one of the sources of the problems plaguing the county.

The Chairman of the Nigeria Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB), Rotimi Edu, who said this at the bi-monthly Brokers Council Members Evening held in Lagos, noted that currently in the country, l Education is considered a formality and not a pride, adding that with this the country would remain poor.

“To say that the mismanagement of our education system in Nigeria is one of the sources of our problems and poverty is saying the obvious. Personally, I am saddened to see that our students in tertiary institutions have been expelled from school for the past eight weeks due to industrial action by members of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU),” Edu noted.

According to him, with the level of moral decay and quick money syndrome plaguing our society, excluding students at this time is a serious challenge for our nation.

Edu said there is no doubt that the Nigerian ecosystem is currently dominated by political activities ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He noted that Nigeria was in its pre-election era, a season when each political party elects its candidates for the general elections next year.

The NCRIB boss said he was passionately calling on the media to go beyond superficial reporting and highlight the basic and other qualities of all candidates without bias.
