Nigeria’s Education System Is In Serious Trouble- Wole Soyinka

Written by Rita Nwachukwu

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has decried the system of education in the country.


Prof. Soyinka said that Nigeria’s system of education is horrifying and in serious trouble.


He stated this on Sunday during the presentation of a play titled, ‘Folly of Men’ which took place at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).


He said, “We are in serious trouble, education wise in this country. Let me not kid you; it’s horrifying.”


“That was why I was happy about the initiative of creating a model school and trying to resurrect this Government College and present it as the ideal. We are really very low, education wise.


“I have learnt how much they (old students association) have done in the last few days and I am very proud of their work. I just hope the government leaves them alone; don’t interfere with them. Let them bring back to everybody’s mind the possibility of what education can be.”

According to report, the three plays were adapted from Soyinka’s ‘Trial of Brother Jero’, Femi Osofisan’s ‘No More the Wasted Breed’, and Bode Sowande’s ‘Mamiwater’s Wedding’.
