Very funny! Sometimes, our politicians make us look like we are all illiterates. Where is the place of this bill on our scale of priority of measures to be taken to seriously improve Nigeria’s education standards? Or is this not one of those that will end up being trashed in the bin after they have glorified their ineffectiveness once again? How is this a drastic measure? How does it affect the millions of Nigerian children affected with the poor state of education we are facing. Read this.
A bill which seeks to prevent children of public office holders from schooling abroad has passed second reading in the Senate.
The bill, if passed, will restrict children of public office holders from schooling abroad except for specialized courses not offered in any of the country’s educational institutions.
The sponsor of the bill, Senator Mohammed Basheer (PDP Kano) said the country’s education sector is confronted with serious challenges and it has become important for the Senate to adopt drastic measures to rescue the ailing educational system.
The bill was among three bills which passed second reading in the Senate earlier without being debated.
If we look into this, more than three quarters of the Senators have their kids schooling abroad, or about to make a plan to, or  even have completed their studies abroad. And we all know that this will not stop.
The sponsor of the bill noted that “it has become important for the Senate to adopt drastic measures to rescue the ailing educational system.

Sir, this is an unrealistic measure. Please can you do a proper research?

  1. I’m sick to my stomach with the way these Senators parade their ineffectiveness! Where is the sense in all of this? It is even unconstitutional to bring this up! Or do they think we are all dum? Unfortunately we are not!!! What kind of people are we voting in? Please Nigerians, vote wisely next time please!
