President Muhammadu Buhari has acknowledged the sacrifices Nigerian parents make in getting their wards educated.
Speaking during a panel session at the Global Education Summit in London, the President said Nigerians were acutely aware of the importance of education, and therefore prioritise it.
On the panel with President Buhari were Presidents Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Faure Gnassingbe of Togo, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi.
Each President spoke on the peculiarities of the education sector of his country, and how budgetary provisions would be increased to ameliorate the situation.
President Buhari had earlier committed to raising the budget for education by 50 percent in the next two years, saying that Nigeria would attain 100 percent increase by 2025.
