Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo has warned the government to act fast in reducing out-of-school children or risk having potential 20 million Boko Haram members.
Mr Obasanjo said this in Abuja on Tuesday while speaking at the National Summit on Tertiary Education Reform organised by the House of Representatives.
The summit which was held in Abuja was convened to provide answers to the incessant industrial actions by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Mr Obasanjo, in his speech, said the government must devise innovative means to reduce out-of-school children. He added that there is a need to emphasize primary and secondary education in the country.
