Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The Trans­parency Ad­vo­cacy De­vel­op­ment Ini­tia­tive (TADI) has urged the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to com­mit more funds to de­vel­op­ment of ed­u­ca­tion.

Na­tional Co­or­di­na­tor of the group, Yomi David made the ap­peal yes­ter­day in Abuja.

He said in­vest­ing more funds in the sec­tor would en­sure proper de­vel­op­ment of man­power for the coun­try to solve hu­man cap­i­tal chal­lenges.

“The sec­tor has suf­fered from poor fund­ing in the past. This must not be al­lowed to con­tinue by the present gov­ern­ment led by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari. We urge the pres­i­dent to en­sure that the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor un­der his ad­min­is­tra­tion re­ceived a lion share of the bud­get as he has al­ready be­gun,” David said.
