• The outgoing Registrar of the National Examinations Council (NECO), Professor Promise Okpala, has suggested the adoption of bond scholarship for development of education sector in Nigeria.

    Okpala, who made the call on Sunday in Minna said that the adoption would encourage the citizens to take educational courses that would be of immense benefits to them and the country also.

    “This bonding scholarship entails giving scholarship to outstanding students to study peculiar courses like teaching, engineering, space and atomic sciences.

    “The bonding should come in the form of agreeing with the beneficiaries that they shall work for the government for a particular period of time.

    “During this bond period, other Nigerians will benefit from their expertise with its ripple effect as well as encourage others to toe such paths of beneficial course.

    “At the end, a time will come when gradually such scholarship may be withdrawn and thousands of Nigerians will have been encouraged to take part without incentives from government,” he said.

    Okpala also called for the review of the country’s educational system, to enable graduates at all levels to be self reliant and employers of labour.

    On the downward trend of the basic primary education, the NECO boss said that much was needed in teaching and learning environment. (NAN)
