FG targets 15 million out-of-school enrolment by 2027

The Federal Government has expressed commitment to return 15 million out-of-school children back to the classroom by 2027.

The Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, disclosed this in Abuja on Thursday at a one-day retreat on Quick Wins in the Ministerial Deliverables (2023-2027).

Mamman explained that the learning crisis had also been a major issue which he said was a bad product of the out-of-school menace, hence, must be taken seriously.

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

The Federal Ministry of Education has further distilled the implementation of the ministerial deliverables to a more detailed implementation with turnaround strategies that would be measurable and capable of providing results that would be very visible to the Nigerian public.

“On out-of-school menace, we would be paying particular attention to this unacceptable phenomenon and in line with President Bola Tinubu’s commitment, would work towards returning 15 million out-of-school children to the classrooms by the year 2027,” he said.

The minister said Tinubu had approved the reintroduction and implementation of school feeding across basic educational levels.
