Federal government has been advised to review the secondary school curriculum in the country in order to equip students and young school leavers with knowledge on how to contribute to nation-building through wealth creation.
Speaking with Planet News on the sidelines of a three-day leadership training organized by a non-profit organization, LEAP Africa for youth corp members in Uyo, the Executive Director of the organization, Femi Taiwo said the current school curriculum limited the capability of the students.
He said as an organization committed to developing dynamic innovative and principled African leaders, the i-LEAP programme was designed to help students in secondary schools develop their potentials to become useful citizens in the future.
Taiwo who said LEAP Africa was partnering with NYSC to train corp members and equip them to train students in their various places of primary assignments, said Akwa Ibom was selected as the pilot state for the programme and called on major stakeholders to create an enabling environment for the repositioning of the education sector.
Our Correspondent, Bassey Ibiatisuho reports that some of the Corp members who attended the training commended LEAP Africa for the initiative and promised to mentor their students in their places of primary assignments to become good leaders and entrepreneurs.
