The communiqué also states, “Education is a public good and should not be left in the hands of private individuals who are driven solely by profit motive. On no account should public funds, such as TETFund, PTDF, among others, be used to fund private educational institutions and associated enterprises, the communiqué stated.”

The communiqué also urged the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in the education sector and stressed the need for urgent and radical action to address it. [Excerpts: Daily Trust]
