A Nigerian lawmaker has spoken out publicly on why he thinks Nigerian colleges of education and polytechnics should be phased out from the educational system.

While speaking at an event organised by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), in Abuja, Nigerian Senate Chief Whip, Olusola Adeyeye, gave reasons why he thinks Nigerian Colleges of Education and Polytechnics should be phased out soon from the nation’s educational system.

According to Premium Times, the Nigerian lawmaker said this is because, ”the educational structures that gave rise to the institutions such as ‘standard six, grade one, grade two and grade three’, had already been phased out."

Speaking during the JAMB event tagged, “Strategic planning on the conduct of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation” on Tuesday, the senator said; ”there is no serious future for a society that makes the weakest its teachers,” in a veiled reference to products from colleges of education and polytechnics.

“During admission process, the ‘best students’ go to the universities, second best students go to the polytechnics while ‘others’ go to colleges of education and such students are expected to be teachers and teach best students.

“I have my private fears. I don't believe God will solve Nigeria’s problem, we are to make it work. If you want to see the future of any society, visit their schools,” he said. He did not explain further.

The lawmaker may perhaps not be on the same page with the Nigerian government which in November last year said it had concluded plans to restructure polytechnics in Nigeria to focus on research and development of indigenous technology.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had said this at the 17th convocation ceremony of Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, in Ogun State.

He explained that the focus of the government in strengthening the institutions would be largely on agriculture and alternative sources of energy. He noted that the government would no longer tolerate the situation where technology – based institutions shifted their focus to courses in liberal arts.
