Private school owners plan to award full scholarships to 5 Million out-of-school children in Nigeria as they are worried by the socio-economic impact of a huge number (millions) of out-of-school children in Nigeria, in one of our latest School & Student News blog post
According to the School & Students Education News report, the National President of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), Yomi Otubela, gave this revelation in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune.
He said that NAPPS member schools which are more than 50, 000 and spread across all the 774 local government councils in the country, have taken up the project and are very committed to it.

The NAPPS President said the modality is that each of the schools will be enrolling as many children of school-going age that are not in school as they can in their various schools, particularly within their areas of operations on a yearly basis.
He said they had more than five years timeline for the project and many of the member schools had already keyed into it as part of their social responsibilities to society.
Mr. Otubela explained that NAPPS believes that for Nigeria to continue to parade a vast number of out-of-school children as it is doing currently does not augur well for the country and its people.
He said though the government’s responsibility is to provide functional and quality education to its citizenry, particularly at the primary and secondary level, it cannot shoulder the burden alone, owing to the limited number of schools and economic resources at its disposal.
