‘In­dis­ci­pline, bane of ed­u­ca­tion in Nigeria’

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Atika Balal, Katsina

The Wazirin Katsina, Dr. Sani Abubakar Lugga, has iden­ti­fied in­dis­ci­pline as the bane of ed­u­ca­tion in Nigeria, while call­ing on stake­hold­ers in the sec­tor to in­ten­sify ef­forts to rid the sys­tem of the men­ace.

He spoke yes­ter­day in Katsina at the 30th an­niver­sary of the Govern­ment Col­lege Katsina Old Boys As­so­ci­a­tion, 1984 set.

Lugga said un­less ef­forts are re­in­forced to wipe out cor­rup­tion and in­dis­ci­pline among Nige­ri­ans, the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor and the coun­try in gen­eral will re­main in a state of de­cay.

“Po­lit­i­cal lead­ers squan­der the peo­ples’ money for­get­ting that there is an af­ter­life. The younger gen­er­a­tion have be­come no­to­ri­ous and teach­ers them­selves have changed. They do not in­stil dis­ci­pline in pupils any­more. You go to our schools and you see good struc­tures but what use is it if there are no good teach­ers. Ed­u­ca­tion and dis­ci­pline walk hand in hand and as long as our lead­ers fail to un­der­stand this, we will re­main in trou­ble,” he said.
