Nigerians Challenge Buhari’s 48bn Education Budget

Nigerians and major stakeholders in education in Nigeria have decried the low budgetary allocation to education by the Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In the recent 2020 budget presented before the National Assembly by President Buhari, the allocation for the national assembly was about N125bn, far higher than the allocation for education which is N40bn.

When compared with previous administrations, President Buhari's government has given a much lower budget to education.

One of the biggest problems facing the Nigeran educational system is poor funding for research and infrastructure. Teachers and lecturers also frequently have clashed with the government over agreements for allowances and other funds promised them by the government.

Some have described the 40bn budgetary allocation as grossly inadequate in a country where about 12million kids are out of school and millions are receiving a poor quality education.
