Fashola blames country’s woes on leaders’ poor education

By Olasunkanmi Akoni

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, blamed poor quality education of Nigeria’s leaders for the nation’s woes.

This came as Lagos government dismissed any plan to take over the burnt popular Alade Market, Allen, Ikeja, saying “it would only enumerate and investigate the cause of it with a view to forestalling future occurrence.”

Fashola, who spoke during a visit by the management of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, led by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahman Bello, at the state house, Alausa, said: “The disconnection between our educational curricula from our evolving needs is responsible for the poor performance of the country’s economy.

“The performance of the nation’s economy is a function of the quality of education those managing it received.”
