The leadership of Unified Nigeria Youth Forum, UNYF, has noted with satisfaction that the tenure of the minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu witnessed remarkable progress in the educational sector.
In a statement by its president, Abdulsalam Mohammed Kazeem, it said that there were some ministers in the last cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration that performed credibly well in their various ministries.
The statement reads in part: “The leadership of unified Nigeria Youth Forum called on President Muhammadu Buhari to consider some members of his immediate past cabinet in his next level agenda. Available statistics proved that few ministers performed credibly well in their various ministries, while about 75 per cent of them performed below expectation bearing in mind the bottlenecks created by the leadership of the 8th National Assembly.
“Educational sector is the engine room of growth and development of any nation; and it has a direct bearing on the future of its youths, and as youths, we are not unaware that qualitative education via policy making and policy implementations is the foundation of every nation’s successful story.
“Mallam Adamu Adamu, who served as the minster of education between 2015 and 2019 ensured he surpassed the records of his predecessors of the last five decades.”
UNYF noted that Adamu Adamu, unlike many of the immediate past ministers that are faced with series of allegations; ranging from job racketeering, contract scandal, favourism, nepotism and corruption, ensured the stability of his principal’s administration by fearlessly treating all and sundry equally.
The statement said the position of the forum is based on the fact that Nigerians are no longer ready to accept blame, advising the next level cabinet of the President to share the same principle, vision and mission with the President for the overall development of the country.
