      if the federal govt finally agrees on this action, it means nigerian youths and families are not represented at both the national assembly and house of reps. it will also mean that the FEC is not objective at its delibrations. if it’s hapens anyway, i stand to emphasis that all colleges of education and Nig institute of teachers should be upgraded to university or scramble them off. what will the holders of NCE and grate 2 certificates be useful for in the education sector. HON Min for education should educate the whole nigerian on my stance,pls.
