She argued that this would put a stop to the resource mismanagement challenge facing the country.
Owo-Odusi gave the advice during the fifth graduation of the school on Wednesday in Lagos.
According to her, pupils of the school are taught money management to prepare them for the future.
She said, “Pupils should be taken through things like planning a single budget on the little allowances they get every month by looking at their income and expenditure. They should also go through things like knowing if they are making loss or gain. In Amville, it is activity-based and we taught them using both the local and international currencies. They had a brief stint at money management skills via the Junior Achievement.
Owo-Odusi, who lamented the declining state of education in the country, urged the Federal Government to invest more in basic education.
She added, “The state of education in our nation is worrisome and calls for action. The national security challenges stem from failed family structures, poor and failed educational systems and unemployment. At the centre of this is the education system. It is worrisome that in some states in our nation there are millions of children out of school.
