The incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari, has progressed to develop all economic sectors of the country. He has also deeply influenced his positive changes in the education sector of the country.
Here are three major acts that the Federal Government has shown its power to improve the education sector.
1. Increment in the Minimum Wage
In April 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari signed the Minimum Wage Bill into law amid rising living costs and poverty levels, thus increasing the minimum wage by 62.2%, from eighteen thousand, five hundred naira to thirty thousand naira.
2. Increment in the Retirement Age and Service Years
In 2020, President Muhammadu Buhari had promised to enhance teachers' remuneration and increase their retirement age from 60 to 65 years, and service years from 35 to 40 years.
3. Payment of Undergraduate Studying Education Courses
On 5th October 2021, the Federal Government has designated to spend the aggregate of seventy-five thousand naira (N75,000) for each semester for undergraduates exploring education programs in federal or state institutions and fifty thousand naira for those who register for a National Certificate In Education (N.C.E) programme.
This was announced by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, during the celebration of World Teachers' Day.
