“No nation can fight a war without an army, in the same way, Nigeria cannot grow without entrenching a 21st century education system that is globally competitive.

“Education is on the concurrent list and as such its management and administration has a lot to do with interrelationship and interface between the different tiers of governments.

“Therefore, there is need for synergy and understanding and vibrant regular communication channels between these levels.

“If the recommendations made in this paper are to be implemented effectively, there is the need to put in place, a multi-tier interactive and communication system that will engender collective ownership of educational policies and programmes.

“At the same time, participation in decisions on educational activities or matters among the Federal Ministry of Education, relevant committees of the National Assembly, State Ministries of Education, as well as local education authorities is also a key” he said.

He said that the major thrust of the SDG4 was to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education as well as promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
