Every effort shall be made to ensure ‘equality of opportunity in access and success’ to all learners; creating a harmonious, and cohesive egalitarian society that practices democratic values.

This would be possible only when Education accords due emphasis on National integration, social cohesion, and patriotism.

It must also be analyzed how far education has contributed to moral, ethical values in the individuals and the society.

We have to become a knowledge society and has to reverberate with educated skilled manpower of high standards required to meet the challenges of 21st century.

This requires a bold and visionary leadership to introduce appropriate policy and structural changes.

Highest priority would be given to address the acute shortage of teachers and researchers, quality of education and research, and also the employability factor associated with most of the courses, government and unions crisis (ASUU and ASUP strikes). Education should not only lead to employability but also job creation and entrepreneurship by introducing a National multi-skills orientation program.

We intend to review and revise education system; the salary structures associated with the teaching staff and most importantly, address the shortfall of faculty and related issues in the country.
