We’ll Solve Out-Of-School Children Menace By 2027, Says FG

The Federal Government says it is committed to return the over 15 million out-of-school children to the classroom by 2027.

The Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman, who was speaking in Abuja yesterday at a One-Day Retreat on Quick Wins in the Ministerial Deliverables (2023-2027), said the out-of-school menace must be taken seriously.

He said having robust policies in place was not enough to tackle the challenges but that delivering on the policies would go a long way to address the problem of out-of-school children.

The minister also noted that President Bola Tinubu had approved the reintroduction and implementation of school feeding across basic educational levels.

He also explained that the removal of tertiary institutions from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) was necessary to give tertiary institutions the autonomy to operate.

Minister Mamman added that the ministry would work with the Minister of Finance/Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation to ensure its seamless implementation.
