In Nigeria, the children of the rich and wealthy have access to the best schools, good teachers, and resources while the children of the poor are taught by unqualified absentee teachers and sometimes have to study under trees and leaking roofs. Children from poor families also skip schools regularly because they have to help their families with farm work, hawking, or selling wares in the shops and market to assist in sustaining their families.

The institution disclosed this in a statement by Uredo Omale, its Head, Public Relations and Protocol Unit, on Saturday in Lokoja.
