A New Year poll report released announced by NOIPolls has revealed that most Nigerians want the government to focus its attention mainly on Education.

Other areas Nigerians seek improvement after education includes security and electricity supply.

According to the poll report, education topped the demands by 49 per cent given the series of challenges facing the sector followed by security and electricity supply.

“For instance, poor funding is one of the major reasons for the deterioration and challenges in the education sector, especially tertiary education, which has led to frequent strikes by academic and non-academic staff since the early 1990s.

“The Federal Government’s allocation to education in the last 10 years has been inadequate as only a total of N3.90 trillion or an average of 7.07 per cent has so far been allocated to the sector out of a total budget of N55.19 trillion,” NOIPolls revealed.

The poll report added that a Demographic Health Survey (DHS) conducted by the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) and the Nigerian government revealed that the number of out-of-school children rose from 10.5 million in 2010 to 13.2 million in 2015 in Nigeria.

According to NOILPolls results, further analysis by geopolitical zones revealed certain peculiarities across geopolitical zones regarding the areas Nigerians expects the government to focus its attention on in 2019.

“For instance, while education (64 per cent) and security seem to be a priority for residents from the North-West and North-East zones, electricity appears to be a more pressing issue for Nigerians in the South-South zone. Similarly, residents in the South-West zone indicated economy as the most pressing area where the government should focus its attention on in 2019.

The report submits: “In conclusion, the poll has revealed that the quality and standard of education is Nigeria is unacceptable as most Nigerians task the government to improve the sector in 2019”.
