The Global President of Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC), Bida, old students association, Mrs Bukola Olatunji, has said that the decline in the standard of education witnessed in Nigeria is not peculiar to the country.
Speaking in Abuja on Friday, during a press conference heralding the annual general meeting/reunion of the association, she said the present crisis in the education sector has assumed a global dimension.
Olatunji, however, described the trend as worrisome, stressing the need for all hands to be on deck to address the issue.
According to her, “It is not just Unity Schools, something has happened to us. I was among a group of some people that went to visit the United States and they were talking about the issue of people not coming to class but they still got a degree.
