ECOWAS, NAE Partner On Quality Of Education For Member States by sophsia62: 6:51am On Sep 05, 2018
The Nigerian Academy of Education (NAE) has expressed readiness to partner with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to lift the quality of education at all levels in the sub-region.

President of NAE, Professor Elizabeth Eke, who disclosed this in a statement yesterday, said the collaboration would promote cooperation, exchange and support among ECOWAS member states.

Eke said the cooperation will be hinged on competence, priority and availability of required resources to ensure that the standard of education in West Africa becomes one of the best globally.She added that it would concentrate on higher education and training; youth, gender development and empowerment; language immersion; information and experience sharing; regional integration; academic mobility and related activities.

“This partnership makes it easy for us to facilitate exchange of information and documents of common interest that will ultimately lead to improved standards of education in West Africa,” she said.

She also disclosed that education stakeholders in the West African sub-region would converge on Abuja for the inaugural edition of the West Africa Education Conference from October 8-12, 2018.

The meeting, she revealed, will be attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, who is Chairman of ECOWAS, while the keynote address will be delivered by United Nations (UN) Under Secretary for West Africa, Muhammad Ibn Chambas, just as Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and NAE will be hosts.

Eke added the meeting will be the first time West African countries will be coming together under one roof to discuss common issues, as they affect the standard of education in the sub-region.

“The conference, to be hosted in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, will provide ECOWAS member countries the opportunity to deliberate on common educational issues like access to education, funding, shortage of teachers, infrastructure problems and education of displaced children, among others, with a view to proffering solutions to them,” she stated.

While this is a good idea, my fear is that Nigeria is the course leader. Can we give more than our capability and standards in terms of educational development?

Just take a look at Nigeria's budget on education that will give the value our leaders place on it?

They don't believe you....



Other West African countries have left us behind as far as education is concerned.... Check the budget for education alone and most the paltry voted for education are mostly for overhead and building.... Nothing for research and updating lab equipment
