Executive Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Hamid Bobboyi, has expressed concern over the upsurge of cultism, ‘yahoo-yahoo’ and other social vices in the nation’s education system. 

He spoke in Abuja yesterday while declaring open a stakeholders’ meeting on moral regeneration and re-orientation at basic education level.

He noted that the event was organised to address the rising moral decadence among young students in secondary schools.

According to him, cultism, almost similar to ancient Egyptian cult last practised about 100 BC, is now springing up in the system. 

He said, “Over the years, there has been great concern over the degeneration of moral and overturn of values in our society. This is demonstrated in the many vices and negative behavior such as stealing, drunkenness, financial crime known as yahoo-yahoo, truancy, violence, and many others. The disheartening aspect is that many of these vices are now prevalent in our schools especially the basic education schools.”
