Adamu also frowned at the situation where many graduating students of tertiary institutions in Nigeria do not know how to read, adding that it should be of serious concern to all and sundry.

“Many graduating students in many tertiary institutions across the country find it difficult to write, read or communicate in English. Government is aware of this unfortunate development in our education sector and it will not rest on its oars to salvage the situation,” Adamu said.

According to Adamu, not only the “lecturers, but stakeholders in the educational sector should sit up to ensure that the decline in the value of education is breached within the shortest possible time”.
