Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka on Sunday, October 13, said Nigeria’s education system is in serious trouble.
Professor Soyinka stated this at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), after a programme held as part of activities to mark the 90th anniversary of the Government College, Ibadan, The Cable reports.
According to the renowned writer he said: “We are in serious trouble, education-wise in this country. Let me not kid you; it’s horrifying.
“That was why I was happy about the initiative of creating a model school and trying to resurrect this Government College and present it as the ideal. We are really very low, education-wise.
“I have learnt how much they (old students association) have done in the last few days and I am very proud of their work. I just hope the government leaves them alone; don’t interfere with them. Let them bring back to everybody’s mind the possibility of what education can be.”
