The Nigerian government(s) have consistently proven itself to be grossly incompetent in managing public basic schools, yet it has refused to give up this responsibility because of greediness, corruption and constitutional reference.
In several communities in Nigeria, we have govt funded basic schools; well paid staff, fair or poor infrastructures
My point is this; govt cannot continue to act as both a regulator and the regulated. It should hand over public basic schools to communities. Communities should be allowed to run the basic schools in their domain, communities should be allowed to hire and fire their staff, maintain infrastructures
Federal, State and LGAs have no business managing public basic schools. These schools should be handed over to communities. This is the best way to introduce efficiency in our schools and drastically reduce high govt recurrent expenditure on the part of the govt.
The present structure of Nigeria is fraudulent and retrogressive. It promotes poverty, low standard of living, underdevelopmen
We need to restructure Nigeria and entrench #TrueFederalism.
