Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday said the Federal Government was working assiduously on initiatives that would restore quality education and sustainable future for Nigerians.

Osinbajo said this in Lagos during the 2019 edition of Edu360, organised by Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, with the theme “Education beyond walls”.

The vice president, represented by the Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, acknowledged that the inclusive prosperity of citizens required government commitment to inclusive education.

He said government had spent over N1.6 trillion in the education sector in the last few years through the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), leading to improved literacy level, inclusive and qualitative education system.

He called for a deeper collaboration between the public and private sector to reposition the education system to its rightful pedestal, thus securing the future of the youths and the country.
