Nigeria has the largest human resource capital in Africa waiting to be developed. With an economy that is the largest in Africa, the potential of the country is limitless if our human resources are properly harnessed.
Harnessing this resource properly starts from a proper and functioning foundational education system. Unfortunately, that is not the case right now. According to UNICEF, one in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria. 10.5 million of the country’s children aged 5-14 years are not in school. Only 35.6 percent of children aged 36-59 months receive early childhood education.
