FG says out-of-school children now 10.3 million

The Federal Government on Wednesday said the number of out-of-school children has dropped to 10.3 million from 12 million.

The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono, said this on Wednesday at the zonal dissemination workshop of Nigeria Education Sector Analysis report held in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

The Permanent Secretary said various interventions by stakeholders in the sector led to the drop in the statistics of out-of-school children.

Echono, represented by Director, Educational Planning, Research and Development in the ministry, Dr Folake David, said Nigeria still has issues of access to education.
