Self Confessed Failure: Minister Of Education Adamu Adamu Says He Failed In His Roles

Nigeria’s ever longest serving Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on Thursday, confessed that he failed in his roles and responsibility in office.

He said that it was regrettable that despite being the longest serving minister of education in the nation’s history that he was unable to solve several of the challenges of the sector, many of them, he admitted that he could have solved.

The minister spoke at the ongoing 66th National Council on Education holding in Abuja, the Federal Capital. Adamu observed that among the several challenges that marked his failed tenure as minister of education were the out-of-school children which under his seven year stewardship of the sector increased.

However, many Nigerians would identify the major problems of the minister to also include the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU which lasted for eight months with the minister unable to provide a panacea until the intervention of the National Assembly.

Adamu also blamed the State Ministries of Education as factors who caused him to have failed as a minister though he has as yet not explained the role of the states in contributing to his failures in office.

Reports that the failure of the minister in his education portfolio is despite the fact that he is about the closest to President Muhammadu Buhari with a leverage to make demands on the president that many others may not be able to make.
