Awuzie told the News Agency
of Nigeria (NAN) in Asaba

countries to send their
children to Nigeria for
He said: “As it is now, our
sister countries, send their
wards to Europe for
schooling, because they
believe that their children will
get quality education there.
“ But if we can improve our
educational system here,
these people will now be
sending their children to our
country, and this means
more revenue will be
generated.  ”
Awuzie said Nigeria was
blessed with quality
academics who, when allowed
to operate in an enabling
environment, would fast-

for teaching, then
professional ethics will be
kept, ” he said and he

sound education.
Awuzie said it was not in the
interest of the country for
policy makers not to

“ They corner the resources
of this nation and use them
to send their children abroad

the quality of education and
enhance access to education

said and called on Nigerian
students to unite in the
struggle to reposition
education in the country, as
the future would be bleak if
they did not.
He said the repositioning
should start with educational
empowerment, enlightenment
and skills adding that the

the union had only been
suspended, but not called
off, because the agreement
reached with the Federal
Government and its impact
would be reassessed in
