Over time, this has ‘threatened’ the extent of training and brought on a scenario the place the nation’s economic system is below stress, as there appears to be a scarcity of value-added academics, versus those that worship the cash and materialism.
The entire nation is feeling the results, as there’s a scarcity of certified academics on the elementary, secondary and college ranges, leading to a scarcity of skilled and examined directors to fill strategic positions on the native, state and federal ranges. in Nigeria.
Rev. George O. Odunoye, Govt Director of St George Teams of Colleges, situated at Ashimolowo Bus Stand alongside the Lagos-Abeokuta freeway axis of Ifo in Ogun State, dropped these allusions throughout an interview with our correspondent yesterday at his workplace.
This author notes that the college has two arms – St George Basis Faculty and St George Complete Faculty.
Talking on whether or not or not the extent of training in Nigeria is declining, Pastor Odunoye stated the extent remains to be the identical however there are some essential components which have over time contributed to the remedy within the training sector.
His phrases: “Prior to now, academics and conventional leaders had been adored and revered as a result of they had been seen as educated and due to this fact educated.”
However, at the moment, the rise of moneybags and the ensuing cult of cash, which have grow to be societal values that aren’t simply, have enshrined training, advantage and handbook labor within the background, he stated.
Odunoye, a former journalist for The Guardian newspaper, lecturer and publicity guide, additional defined that almost all academics in public colleges are skilled and certified, however don’t do their job, as a result of a poor monitoring system and weak supervision.
“The Ifo Native Authorities Space in Ogun State, the place my college is constructed, has greater than 1000 personal colleges. Some colleges are registered and accredited by the Federal Authorities, numerous examination our bodies in addition to the state authorities, whereas others usually are not”.
“Sure, some personal colleges, with the intention of complementing the efforts of the federal government at completely different ranges to keep up and even exceed the extent of training within the nation, rent unschooled graduates, who may very well be skilled and oriented to combine into the training sector,” he stated.
His phrases: “Let me let you know the reality that almost all college students don’t like to decide on training programs for his or her first selections and this has over time resulted in a scarcity within the variety of skilled and certified academics within the nation”.
Consequently, there is no such thing as a one to show aspiring accountants, docs, engineers, businessmen, directors, and so forth., and the nation’s economic system suffers.
In accordance with him, a lot of the main personal colleges throughout the nation have the amenities, whereas the general public colleges have skilled and certified academics and the personal colleges are regulated by the Ministry of Training at completely different ranges.
In my college, self-discipline and the concern of God, not the worship of cash, are the watchwords, and we do not compromise on that.
