Nigeria: FG to remove education from states’ control

The Federal Government is taking a decision to remove education from the concurrent legislative list and place it at the exclusive list, the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, has said.

The decision which is to provide focus and centralise the administration of education in the country, came despite recent calls by many Nigerians for devolution of power from the federal government to states.

Anwukah stated this in Abuja on Tuesday night, during a send-forth reception organised in honour of the immediate-past Executive Secretary of National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie.
