“Our administration is not oblivious of the role of education in the level of economic development that we envisioned for the State. We know that for the State economy to achieve a quantum leap from the current $131billion GDP and remain very competitive, there must be a paradigm shift in the education sector,”he stated.
Ambode said the challenges of the educational sector must be tackled head on if Nigeria must be active participants in the present knowledge-based global system, assuring that the state government places a premium on the improvement of physical and human infrastructure in public schools.
