The education system will be better if adequate power is provided in schools former Vice-Chancellor, Obafemi Awolowo University, (OAU), Ile-Ife, Prof Akinola Salau, stated this in a paper entitled: Towards sustainable energy provision in Nigeria, which he delivered at the yearly party/lecture of Oluyole Club, Lagos at Kankanfo Inn, Ibadan.
Salau identified inadequate supply of electricity as one of the major problems affecting the quality education.
said: "This country is blessed with energy. We have gas, coal petrol,
but we have the problem of sustainability. Human existence depends on
electricity. If you are in the education system without the electricity,
it will reflect on the result. People in sciences will not be able to
perform experiments; people at home will not do assignment very well;
more importantly, many of us dwell in rural areas without adequate power
supply and if I am the teacher in such an area, it will be difficult.".................Full story
