Senator Barau described education as the bedrock of development saying for Nigeria to get it right, the challenges facing the education sector must be properly addressed.

Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Jibrin Barau, has reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government towards the transformation of the education sector for rapid development in the country.

Senator Barau stated this when he hosted the newly inaugurated leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), at his office in the National Assembly, Abuja, on Monday.

Describing education as the bedrock of development, he said for Nigeria to get it right, the challenges facing the education sector must be properly addressed.

The good news, according to Senator Barau, was that the present administration under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully committed to addressing the challenges facing the country

“From the president to all of us in the government, we are doing our best to take our tertiary education sector to a higher level. But that cannot be achieved without your cooperation. You must key into whatever we are doing before you can be able to get to where you want to. On our part, we are working tirelessly to come up with legislation to support the executive to address the challenges facing the country.

“Your wonderful pedigree made you to be trusted and elected by over 40 million students in the country. For us, what we need to do is to give you the necessary assistance so that you can have the most conducive atmosphere to operate.

“I am here for you and my doors are always open to support you in your operation so that the students of the country can have a conducive learning atmosphere,” he said.

Earlier, the NANS President, Comrade Lucky Emonefe, described Senator Barau as an inspiration and role model to Nigerian students.

He said they were in the office of the Deputy President of the Senate to seek his blessings as a father and a firm supporter of the association.

“Your Excellency, as you see us today, we had paid the same visit to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and we have told him how you have been supporting us. We told him that you are the only Senator who has been supporting the association, and this is for no other reason but your passion and love for students and the youth,” he said.
