Education remains the key to Nigeria’s problems, Peter Obi


Former Anambra State Governor Mr. Peter Obi said that education remains critical to development as well as key to the many problems the country is facing.

He spoke to Rosie Glazebrook, Chief Executive of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, in Lagos yesterday after the breakfast meeting.

Obi, who recalled what education is doing in many parts of the world, said it remained the only enduring legacy by which the future generations would compete with their peers all over the world. He said if Nigeria’s leaders understood as much, ASUU would not be on strike.

As the governor of Anambra State, Obi moved Anambra from 26th position in external examinations to number one among other states in Nigeria. It was after the spectacular improvement that the World Bank commissioned Prof. Paul Collier to study what Anambra State did on education, which they widely published and encouraged other countries to emulate.
