Legal luminary, Afe Babalola (SAN), has decried the continuous fall in the standard of education in the country.
He spoke at a recent event in Ekiti State. Babalola, expressed worry that many of today’s graduates cannot defend their certificates. He described such a situation as a far cry from what obtained in the past.
“The common saying is that ignorance is a disease. I do agree. Indeed, poor education is worse than illiteracy. Poor education is even more dangerous than ignorance. Due to poor education, Nigeria is today producing graduates whose education makes them more dangerous than uneducated people,” he said.
Babalola urged all stakeholders in the education sector to bridge the gap in the sector within the shortest possible term.
