The Senate president urged the committees of the Senate to interface with the relevant ministries, department and agencies to review the educational curriculum.
He said this in his remark during a debate by the Senate centred around improving the quality of life for Nigerians. Nigerian Tribune
reports that Lawan said the country needs an education curriculum that will impart functional knowledge.
Senate president also said a reform in sectors of the economy is needed as some agencies of government have outlived their usefulness because they were created to drive a particular programme of the government.
He said: “These special purpose vehicles in the forms of government-owned agencies may have to be merged or scrapped as part of
measure to free resources for the government to provide maximal benefits in other areas of the nation’s economy.”
“We have too many agencies that do not add value to the government but totally rely on allocation. We may have to merge them or scrap them.
“Many of these agencies were created to attend to certain policy and programme and may have outlived their usefulness. We just
scrap them and create new ones to meet the new reality.”
