The Nigerian government has said it is considering privatising public-owned schools that are not doing well.
The minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, made the statement on Saturday, July 11, during a webinar, The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported.
According to Nwajiuba, public and private sector collaboration is a way to move the education sector forward in the country.
He said the ministry of education is already working on how to concession public schools for private partnerships.
“For instance, we have a lot of public schools that are not doing well; so, instead of building new schools, let us concession some of these schools to those who have the capacity to adopt and close-manage them very well,” he said.
