Educating the Nigerian Girl Child

From a global perspective, the girl child is generally considered highly vulnerable to several societal ills, especially in developing countries where it is believed that effective policies and calculated efforts are needed to safeguard the girl child from the detrimental effect of violence, limited access to education, neglect, abuse, gender disparities, among other challenges.

 

There is growing concern all over the world that decisive and urgent actions need to be taken to address these challenges by creating an enabling environment that will promote proper development of the girl child.

 

Unarguably, education and empowerment initiatives have been identified as crucial vehicles that can be utilized to correct the many troubles of the girl child and also drive sustainable development.

 

This year, attention of governments, non-governmental organisations, policy makers and stakeholders again turned to issues surrounding the girl child as the world observed the International Day of the Girl Child on October 11 with the theme “Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: A Global Girl Data Movement” in line with the United Nations (UN) declaration. Gender inequalities This special day is set aside annually to raise public awareness on girls’ right and highlights gender inequalities that remain between girls and boys all over the world.

 

According to the UN, “there are 1.1 billion girls today, a powerful const-ituency for shaping a sustainable world that’s better for everyone. They are brimming with talent and creativity. But their dreams and potential are often thwarted by discrimination, violence and lack of equal opportunities.

 

There are glaring gaps in data and knowledge about the specific needs and challenges that girls face.” Like other developing countries, the girl child in Nigeria is also faced with most of the challenges confronting girls all over the world. One appalling example is the case of the 276 girls kidnapped in a school in Chibok, Borno State. The sufferings that the girls have been exposed to while in captivity for more than two years further highlight the urgency required in addressing girl child issues.

 

The 2016 International Day of the Girl Child brings to bear efforts being made by governments in Nigeria towards educating and empowering the girl child. Worthy of note are the decisive initiatives undertaken by Osun State. When the present government under leadership of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola assumed office on November 27, 2010 the Public education had been so badly managed that only pupils whose parents could not afford education in private schools were left in the public schools. The students, especially in primary schools were badly dressed and mal-nourished. School build-ings were in dilapidated state, students’ performance both at the internal/external examinations was abysmally poor; there were no instructional materials, while the tuition fees in the state-owned tertiary institution was outrageous.

 

However, the situation has since taken an optimistic tone particularly in line with current focus to prioritise girl child education. There are 622,726 students with 309, 488 females and 313, 238 males, which is a laudable feat as the average expectation for developing nations is that among students not enrolled in school, there are twice as many girls than boys and among illiterate adults there are twice as many women than men.

 

The governor overhauled education in the state by restructuring the education system into elementary (ages 6-9), middle (ages 10-14) and high school (ages 15-17) structure. He also constructed 100 Elementary, 50 Middle, and 20 High Schools during his first term through the O’School programme. His attention also shifted towards improving the nutrition and health of students in public school as the school feeding programme. O’Meals was introduced in line with the recommendation of the UN.

 

The government believes that a well-fed pupil is likely to be more attentive in class than his/her counterpart on an empty stomach. Findings reveal that the programme has impacted positively on school enrolment with an increase of 38,000 pupils, representing 25% within four weeks of its introduction. Enrolment of pupils increased from 155,318 on May 31, 2012 to 194,253 by June 30, 2012. By December 2012, government decided to extend the programme to cover pupils in primaries 1-4 (representing the Elementary School) bringing the total number of pupils being fed to 252,000. At inception, the cost of feeding 155, 318 pupils was N7.7m per day, N38.5m per week and or N169.4m per month. With the increase in enrolment to 252,000 pupils, the cost of feeding went up to N14.8m per day, N74m per week, and N325.6m per month.

 

On the economic front, O’Meals Programme has helped to improve the production capacities of farmer-suppliers of farm produce, and has empowered 3,007 women who were appointed as Food Vendors by the State to serve nutritious meals to pupils on school days. It is noteworthy that the Aregbesola-led administration spends N3billion naira per annum to feed primary 1 – 4 pupils in all the public primary schools in the State of Osun. Out of the 13 original pilot states that started the programme, only the State of Osun is still implementing the School Feeding Programme, in the whole federation.

 

Another significant feat recorded by Osun State in its quest to promote functional education is the sponsorship of 5 outstanding female school student in an exchange program in the United State in partnership with a non-governmental organisation, AWOW International Girls Leadership Initiative, which empowers and offers life skills training, global exposure and professional mentorship to young women. The 5 girls will attend the annual AWOW Summit & College Tour Leadership Forum for young women, scheduled to hold at the Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, United State, with the theme ‘’ Leading the Future.”

 

The AWOW Summit aims to help advance the core goal and main objectives towards the attainment of the White House “Let the Girls Learn Initiative”, the Millennium Development Goal and the United Nations’ Gender Equality & Empowerment for all Women & Girls. Apart from the fact that the summit will enable the girls come together to share their experiences, knowledge, and make friends through cultural exchange, the girls would also have opportunity of scholarship for University Education in the USA, after their high school education. Statistics show that when 10% more girls go to school, a country’s GDP increases by 3% on the average and a child born to a literate mother is 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5.

 

Governor Aregbesola while speaking on state government’s commitment to education development, he said: “This is the continuation of our commitment to standard education. To us, education remains our priority and as a matter of fact, this government has invested hugely on this. “Our belief is that with well-equipped academic teaching and learning environment, coupled with state-of-the-art facilities, the state is on the right path to success. “That is why we are building brighter future for our children knowing that good education prepares nation for good leadership . We are turning around the public schools to bridge the gap between public and private education. “Our education policy has erased the superiority complex between private and public education as sanity has also been restored to public education system.”

 

The UN explained that girls’ education is both an intrinsic right and a critical lever to reaching other development objectives. Providing girls with an education helps break the cycle of poverty: educated women are less likely to marry early and against their will; less likely to die in childbirth; more likely to have healthy babies; and are more likely to send their children to school. When all children have access to a quality education rooted in human rights and gender equality, it creates a ripple effect of opportunity that influences generations to come. Girls’ education is essential to the achievement of quality learning relevant to the 21st century, including girls’ transition to and performance in secondary school and beyond.

 

Adolescent girls that attend school delay marriage and childbearing, are less vulnerable to disease including HIV and AIDS, and acquire information and skills that lead to increased earning power. Evidence shows that the return to a year of secondary education for girls correlates to a 25 per cent increase in wages later in life, the UN said.

Technical Students

The Lagos State Technical and Vocational Education Board (LASTVEB) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Trantouch Ltd to organise a conference for students of the five technical colleges in  state next month.

The Technical Students Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Conference (TECHSEEC) is the brainchild of Mr Collins Uwadia, CEO of Trantouch Ltd, and an alumnus of Government Technical College, Ikotun.

Uwadia said at the signing at the LASTVEB headquarters in GRA, Ikeja, that the conference would expose about 6,000 students of technical colleges to best practices and opportunities in the skills sector by bringing them in contact with seasoned experts, both local and foreign, in a five-star venue.

He also said the students as well as firms in the technical/vocational sector would be able to showcase their creativity through a product exhibition that would feature as part of the event.

During the conference, three lucky students would win slots to get trained in the United Arab Emirates (UAE); and afterwards, about 1,000 final year students of the colleges would also get opportunity for three to six months of training in graphic design, basic computing, business writing, GSM repairs, social media engagement, customer relationship management to be provided by three seasoned ICT firms.

“This initiative was borne out of passion and my experience, having being privileged to work locally and internationally in the technical field,” he said.

Lauding the initiative, Director, Technical and Vocational Education, Mr Laolu Oguntuyi, who signed the MoU as Acting Secretary of LASTVEB, said the board needed private sector partnership to boost the quality of training the students  so that they can be relevant in the work place.

“I am happy about this programme because it will correct the poor perception about Technical and Vocational Education.

“All of us know that there is inadequate linkage between the educational institutions and industry. This training would bridge the gap,” he said.

CEO of Rhoda Michael School of Fashion, Mrs Rhoda Agbeyo, who chaired the organising committee for TECHSEEC, underscored the need for Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) training. She said it was not inferior as evidence of its usefulness was demonstrated in increasing number of graduates seeking training at her fashion school.

“This is what Nigeria needs right now. We have so many graduates in Nigeria without skills. I am a graduate/masters holder who is back to vocational studies. Now I am a teacher of many students at Rhoda Michael School of fashion, who are graduates.

National Universities Commission

Council of Legal Education (CLE) was established by the Federal Government as a body to administer vocational training to all law graduates from universities accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC), aspiring to practise as advocates and solicitors of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. The Nigerian Law School (NLS) wholly-owned by the Federal Government is earmarked for that purpose under the management of CLE.

 

By statute, powers of the Council are delineated to training of law graduates while NUC Act exclusively vests powers of regulations and accreditation of universities programmes in NUC. Categorically, all universities are licensed by the Federal Government; academic programmes are accredited by NUC while professional bodies carry out supervisory roles.

 

Nevertheless, all work harmoniously towards efficient service-delivery. In Section four of Legal Education (Consolidations etc.) Act, “subject to this Act, the Attorney-General of the Federation may give the Council directions of a general character with regard to the exercise by the Council of its functions and it shall be the duty of the Council to comply with such directions.” Thus, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice; a representative of the Federal Government oversees operations of the Council. Regrettably, the AGF had in futility issued directives to the Council to grant admission quota to National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

 
In a similar vein, all professional bodies overseeing respective university programmes statutorily queue under the NUC and thus report to the regulatory body. Where non compliance vis-à-vis ethics of any of the professions is detected, the respective professional body could give directions to the university or where deviance is intense, a petition to the NUC and or recommendation for sanctions may follow suit. By this arrangement, professional bodies including the CLE unequivocally lack powers to sanction or reject accreditation-status on universities by the regulatory body, unfortunately, NOUN’s accreditation by the NUC was arbitrarily snubbed by the Council despite clearly demarcated functions.

 

Splendid, the Federal Government pursuant to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on education through Open and Distance Learning (ODL) established NOUN, and today, the institution which kicked-off with 10 schools including the faculty of Law has become the largest in the country.

 

Unfortunately, the CLE glowered on ODL disregarding the fact that the world is now in a digital age especially, the unrestricted admission-policy unlike the conventional universities where admissions are based on nepotism and monetized; and in most cases purchased in huge sums thereby depriving the underprivileged the right to get admissions in disciplines of choice. Apart from that, ODL offers unique opportunities different from the conventional techniques chiefly on flexibility thereby enables citizens get quality education amidst obvious conundrums.

 

NOUN’s first set graduated with high hopes since 2012 but while awaiting admission quota to the Law School, met a shocker from CLE discrediting their certificates and arbitrarily denied them of entry into the facility wholly-owned by the Federal Government. Meanwhile, CLE is made up of practising lawyers similar to lecturers in NOUN faculty of law. Resplendently, these graduates; mostly matured and engaged in various endeavours ignored the provocations, instead succumbed to allow justice prevail over the intimidations. Basically, the position of CLE cannot be justified on account that practising lawyers from conventional universities lecture and examine NOUN law students with the same books and course-outlines.

 

Without a doubt, the key factor presented by the Council which centred on standardisation of the noble profession is long overdue, unfortunately, it was narrowed to ODL which is akin to ‘divide and rule’ approach whereby the deteriorating values in the profession so far are from products of the conventional universities. In other words, CLE ought to look lengthily on how to improve the standard of legal profession instead of parochially tagging a particular university’s modes.

 
The world is changing swiftly and Nigeria cannot be socially quarantined. Interestingly, most stuffs from distance-learning are distinguished in the profession while on the other hand, several law-graduates from the conventional universities are still unable to get rid of the law school studies; hence, it goes beyond designation of universities but a cogent need for broad reforms. Even if degree in law is to be pursued as secondary degree, it should be conceptualized on general applications.

 

By the Council’s delays in admitting NOUN law graduates, innocent citizens who spent time and resources to complete course-modules comparable to their fellows in the conventional universities have been spitefully hindered from undergoing training for practice and enrollment to the bar knowing that in Nigeria, advocate and solicitor are fused, hence without enrollment to the bar, the basic tool for practice is denied. This is the height of injustice, despotism and perniciousness.

 

NOUN graduates should as of right be granted admission into the law school while the CLE and other stakeholders work concertedly towards improving on the system. The long years the innocent-victims have wasted at home after graduationis no way justifiable, rather jeopardizes their intellect when eventually cleared from the muddle. NOUN as a newinnovation of the Nigerian government cannot exist without inadequacies; however, remedies shouldn’t be at the detriment of innocent third-parties.

  • JAMB has cancelled the use of scratch cards for any transaction
  • The board described the use of cards as archaic and old-fashioned
  • The decision is also as a result of fraudulent practices associated with scratch cards

PIC. 2. CANDIDATES WRITING UNIFIED TERTIARY MATRICULATION EXAMINATION   (UTME) IN ABUJA ON TUESDAY (10/3/15). 1256/10/3/2015/HF/BJO/CH/AIN/NAN

CANDIDATES WRITING UNIFIED TERTIARY MATRICULATION EXAMINATION (UTME) IN ABUJA

 

Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has revealed that they have scrapped the use of scratch cards for any transactions and services. The reason given for the scrapping was that it was archaic and subject to fraud.

 

On another note, the registrar, also demanded that the federal government should revert to the former system where serving vice chancellors of universities were made chairmen of the governing board of JAMB.

 

Dr Fabian Benjamin the spokesperson for JAMB, said, the decision to scrap the use of scratch cards was announced by the registrar in Abuja in a paper he delivered during a meeting of the association of vice chancellors of Nigerian universities. In lieu of the scratch cards, the platform of pin vending will be used, in order to check all forms of fraudulent practices which was prevalent with the use of scratch cards.

 

“The decision is as a result of its consistent subjection to fraudulent practices, the use of scratch cards is archaic and it is the drive by JAMB to also promote accountability in line with government’s zero tolerance for corruption. “This new system will be accessible through the options of web payment, ATM issued cards (Visa, verve and Mastercard), online quick teller, ATM payment, quick teller mobile application and Bank Branch case/card,” he said.

 

Speaking about the practice of using university vice chancellors as the chairmen of the governing board of JAMB, Oloyede appealed to the government that since the agency is a creation of the committee of vice chancellors, it would only be proper for them to be clearly recognised as active stakeholders to avoid any acrimony between tertiary institutions and JAMB.

 

He said he believed that this would “engender good synergies and harmonious relationship with a view to effectively delivering on its mandates.” He concluded saying: “This practice which promoted harmony and quality inputs on the Board’s matriculation activities have since been forgotten or neglected.

 

“The appointment of the chairman of the Board could be restricted to only heads of tertiary institutions in Nigeria perhaps in rotational basis among the vice chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics, monotechnics and provosts of colleges of education.”

 

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Senate on Thursday, October 13, extended the validity period of the JAMB Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to three years against the present one year.

Ignatius, who is from Lagos state, said: “Oil and gas being the major source of GDP in Nigeria means that the future of the country might well depend on the sector.
I’m a strong proponent of the ‘Nigeria of Tomorrow’ therefore, in every possible way I want to contribute my quota to the development of my country. Coming from an IT background, I would like to use IT to develop and improve the oil and gas sector.”

 

How system works Ignatius developed an inventory management system for an oil and gas servicing company as part of his MSc project. It is able to monitor and ensure effective management of goods to and from the warehouses and also record sales and purchases of goods while automatically updating stock levels with each transaction.
He said: “Implementing the system was very challenging as it consists of a lot of functionalities. It was developed as a web application to aid authorized access from anywhere around the world as long as there is connection to the internet.

 

The MSc course content itself is a very rich one which encompasses modules from core oil and gas engineering, petroleum geoscience and information technology. I have found my time at RGU very rewarding and the school, alongside dedication on my part, has helped me improve on my software development skills.”

University of Ibadan

A 2017 global ranking of universities released by the Times Higher Education has placed the University of Ibadan in Oyo state at number 801 among the best 978 in the world. The university was the only one in Nigeria that made the list.

 

University of Ibadan is now among the best 1000 in the world Prior to this time, no Nigerian university made the list of the best 1000 and the argument majorly was that the tertiary institutions in the country were lacking in quality research. The University of Oxford topped the rankings in the 12-year history of the table.

 

“It knocks the five-time leader, the California Institute of Technology, into second place in the World University Rankings 2016-2017,” the report said, adding that “Oxford’s success can be attributed to improved performances across the four main indicators underlying the methodology of the ranking – teaching, research, citations and international outlook.

 

“More specifically the institution’s total income and research income is rising faster than its staff numbers, its research is more influential, and it has been more successful at drawing in international talent.”

 

The report showed that two new Asian universities make the top 100 (Chinese University of Hong Kong and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

 

The City University of Hong Kong, University of Science and Technology of China, Fudan University and Hong Kong Polytechnic University also joined the first 200.
