Nigerian educational system is horrifying - Soyinka

Nobel Laureate Prof Wole Soyinka has decried the rot in the nation’s educational system, saying it is in serious trouble.

Soyinka in his speech at the presentation of a play entitled ‘Folly of Men’ (an adaptation of three plays from Soyinka’s ‘Trial of Brother Jero’, Femi Osofisan’s ‘No More the Wasted Breed’, and Bode Sowande’s ‘Mamiwater’s Wedding’) described the Nigerian educational system as ‘horrifying’.

The event which held on Sunday at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), was to mark the 90th anniversary of the Government College Ibadan.

He further added the quality of the country’s education is very low, and that more efforts should be put in making people realize what education can be.

 “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,” the Nobel laureate said.
