The Nigerian Union of Teachers, NUT, has blamed the federal government for students’ dismal performance in 2014 West African Examination Council, WAEC.

 

 

The NUT said the government needs to solve the problem of failure by paying attention to Mathematics and English Language in schools.

 

 

The NUT president, Alobga Olukoya, stated this while briefing journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.

 

Mr. Olukoya identified the cause for the mass failure in Maths and English as inadequate Mathematics and English Language Teachers.

 

 

He said the federal government needs to seek out teachers for those subjects and pay them adequately to retain them in the classrooms.

 

 

Mr. Olukoya called on the government to pay science and maths teachers adequately and issue a letter in that regard which all state governments will comply with dilapidated infrastructure in public schools

 

Mr. Olukoya said public schools have been neglected for too long.

 

 

He explained that classrooms are largely dilapidated, while instructional materials are hard to find in schools and the laboratories are not well equipped.

 

 

He said that supervision of schools is no more regular, discipline in schools has gone down and the boarding system in schools have been DE-emphasized.

 

 

Mr. Olukoya said that reading culture is no more promoted, as home movies are preferred to home reading.

 

“Unrealistic theories and procrastination at addressing schools problems are the other of the day,

 

“Buck passing by different tiers of government parastatals at fixing the identified malaise and labour issues in our education industry is the style in vogue,” Mr. Olukoya said.

 

 

He advised the government to govern well and prevent the student from receiving lessons and writing examinations on bare floor.

 

Let the teachers be motivated and have some sense of belonging in the Nigeria Society, let Parents see their children and wards as their future and be more serious and committed in their obligations,

 

Let the nation promote the right and values and the lost glory of Education return,” Mr. Olukoya said.

 

In May/June 2014, a total number of 1,692,435 candidates sat for the West Africa Examination Council, WAEC.
