WAEC advises FG to open more schools

The Head, West African Examinations Council International, Mr. Adelowo Maliki, has advised the Federal Government to open more schools to accommodate millions of school-aged children roaming the streets.

Maliki said on Wednesday in Lagos that building more schools and equipping them with latest facilities and professional teachers would help in improving the state of education in the country.

He explained that WAEC, as an examination body, did not feel that it was enough just to set tests for students and end it there.

He said, “Our main task, aside conducting examination, is also to research into education-related issues and seek ways of coming up with solutions.

“We have realised that some of the key challenges are inadequate schools, ill-equipped schools, and lack of professional teachers.

“The development is a major challenge in our effort to move forward as a nation.

“One of the ways we try to give back to the society, as our corporate social responsibility, is by noting these challenges and organising seminars that will benefit the teachers and students.

“This is mainly handled by the research unit of the council.
