The World Bank has selected David Malpass as their new President. We want David to use his office to help Nigeria reduce her number of Out-of-School children and improve the quality of education in the country.
Education in Nigeria deserves a state of emergency across all level because of the decaying nature of the sector. There is hardly a public basic school in Nigeria that has the required number of qualified teachers, a functioning library and other necessary school resources. According to a 2015 survey conducted by (UNICEF and the Nigerian government, the population of out of school children in Nigeria has risen from 10.5 million to 13.2 million. This means at least one in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria.
For Nigeria to get out of this ugly situation, there must be a well-coordinated effort and support from developed countries. And the World Bank has the resources and influence to make this happen. This is why we need you and all concerned active citizens within and outside Nigeria to take this action to call on the new president of the bank, to make SDG 4 a reality in Nigeria during his tenure.
