Nigeria: Buhari warns those fanning embers of division

Nigeria: Buhari warns those fanning embers of division
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday warned those fanning embers of division to refrain from the unacceptable tendencies.

He advised them to retrace their steps and learn how to live together with one another.
President Buhari said this in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital at the 33rd convocation ceremonies of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN).

He cautioned against excessive display of intolerance, rancour, mutual suspicion and all such acts capable of causing social unrest in the nation.
“This government will respect and recognise legitimate aspirations of the citizens but this should be done in good faith, within the bounds of rationality and without infringing on the rights of others. I urge all to shun violence as it is only in an atmosphere of peace that we can make true progress,” he added.
Represented by the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Prof Rasheed Abubakar, the president noted that “our nation is on the verge of economic recovery, having just exited a short but painful recession.
“To sustain this recovery and for all of us to experience real change in our living conditions, we must be ready to build on the

achievements already recorded. All must be involved in productive activities in every area of the economy that we are engaged in.
The president also said that his administration would in the next few weeks convene a summit of stakeholders on the education sector
He said, “Government is fully aware of the numerous challenges confronting the education sector in the country. One thing is

incontrovertible. Sustainable human development begins with education as it is the fuel that energies government efforts in every other human endeavour.
“Nigeria was once ranked high in the standard of its education, but the fortunes of that sector have nosedived in the past couple of
decades. This has been a serious source of concern for stakeholders, as the country still harbours millions of school-aged children out of school, has adult and youth illiteracy rates as well as low enrollment, participation and completion rates at all levels and forms of education.

“The concern goes on to the menace of poor performance in public examinations, regional socio-economic and gender disparities in access as well as the highly disturbing unemployable of graduates of the education system.
“These and several other areas of concern have been the reason why i directed the minister of education to convene, with the next few weeks, a ministerial summit to be attended by all members of my cabinet, to tackle the key problems of the sector, with a view to restoring education to its lead role of human game-changer. My government will not allow the country to miss the globally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) train, the driving force of which is education.”
