The President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Com. Sunday Asefon has condemned the 2021 budgetary provision for education under the President Muhammadu Buhari led-administration, describing it as the worst in the last ten years in the country.

Asefon, disclosed this in Ado Ekiti, on Thursday, January 7, during a courtesy visit to the office of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Correspondents’ Chapel, Ekiti chapter. He said the association was planning to organize a summit on how to arrest the shift in the two critical security and education sectors.

The NANS president queried why only 5.6 percent was allocated to the education sector out of a total of N13.6 trillion budgetary provision.

He also pledged that the association under his leadership would invest quality time to advocate for better funding of the education sector which has been neglected because only the children of the poor attend public universities.
