WAEC boss advises FG to open more public schools


Head of West African Examinations Council International, Mr. Adelowo Maliki, has advised the federal government to open more schools to accommodate millions of school-aged children roaming the streets.

Maliki said today in Lagos that building more schools and equipping them with latest facilities and professional teachers would help in improving the state of education in the country.

He explained that WAEC, as an examination body, did not feel that it was enough just to set tests for students and end it there, but also to research into education-related issues and seek ways of coming up with solutions.

He added that government should recruit more teachers and improve their welfare.
