The House of Representatives has announced it will hold a national summit on education reform between November 22ND and 23RD.
The speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, announced this on the floor of the green chamber on Monday while addressing his colleagues who resumed from a six-week break.
Gbajabiamila said scholars, tertiary education administrators, and local and international stakeholders have been invited to submit papers on the theme of the summit.
He said the presentations and submissions will inform the policy recommendations of the summit which will be published in a journal for policy action and academic reference.
Over the years, academic staff of the nation’s tertiary institutions have been embarking on strike over several issues including demands for improved funding for universities and salary review.
