According to Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, who recently unveiled a new curriculum for the country’s tertiary institutions, the new program will enhance the employability of graduates.

On Tuesday in Abuja, Adamu made this announcement while speaking at the public presentation of the Core Curriculum Minimum Academic Standards (CCMAS) Book 1 series for Nigerian universities as well as a book written in his honor.

According to him, the new curriculum would provide graduates of universities across the country with the necessary skills, knowledge, and expertise to thrive in the 21st century.

“We must continue to ensure that graduates from Nigerian universities are equipped with needed skills, knowledge, and expertise in order for them to succeed in the 21st century.

It is imperative that we make constant efforts to align the content of our educational programs and the way we learn with the realities of the best practices around the world. According to him, the CCMAS book series is geared toward accomplishing this objective.
Adamu made a call for the complete implementation of the curriculum while stating that the launch of CCMAS in 17 different fields was one of the most significant steps taken by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to ensure that Nigerian universities are able to meet the demands of the modern global community.

“The implementation of CCMAS requires dedication, hard work, and a willingness to embrace change by everyone,” he said. “It is important that we embrace training and equipping our academics with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement CMAS.” CCMAS stands for the Comprehensive Approach to Managing Academic Standards.

The minister also stated that the people who live in the region are to blame for the educational backwardness that is currently being seen in the northern part of the country.

Adamu praised the NUC for its efforts to encourage the establishment of additional private universities and stated that the commission’s work was bearing fruit as evidenced by the proliferation of educational facilities of this kind in Northern Nigeria in recent years. Adamu made this statement while praising the NUC for its efforts.

“The north is in a state of self-imposed educational backwardness because the interest of the north is Islam, and Islam is the religion that spreads knowledge the most effectively.” In the year 859 A.D., a woman named Fatima Al-Fihri, who was a Muslim, established the first university in the world. At the time, universities in Italy, Oxford, and Cambridge had not yet been established. The first university is still in existence, and it can be found in Morocco today.

” And about a hundred years after that one, another university was established. It was the second university in the world before the universities of Europe, and it was located in Cairo. Just like the first university, this university was established by a Muslim woman named Fatimatu Zahara.

People are using Islam as an excuse to keep women from working outside the home, despite the fact that Muslim women founded the first two universities in the world. I think it does not make sense,” the minister said.

Adamu, on the other hand, was overjoyed to learn that the majority of the 37 brand-new private universities that were given the green light by the Federal Executive Council on Monday will be located in the north.
He advocated for the establishment of a Federal Teachers Service Commission, stating that such a move would ensure that reforms put in place in the teaching profession yield the desired results.

“I want to leave one legacy in your hands (heads of education agencies and others). We wrote a letter, and the President approved everything, but there is one that is yet to come into fruition, that will make education totally different.
Adamu said, “It was just recently that I realized that we need a Federal Teachers Service Commission, so I want to leave this in your hands, so that all those things approved by Mr. president, the teachers will be able to get it, and education will begin to attract the best brains.”

Professor Rasheed Abubakar, the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), was also present and offered his congratulations to the Minister of Education on the numerous accomplishments that were accomplished while he was in office, particularly in the field of university development.

There were 111 private universities in the country as of yesterday morning; the number increased to 148 private universities in the country as of yesterday evening.

“That is, of the 148 private universities in Nigeria, 87 or 60 per cent came during Adamu Adamu’s tenure as Minister of Education,” the head of the NUC said.

Rasheed, who also described CCMAS as a game changer in Nigerian universities, commended the former NUC Executive Secretary, Professor Peter Okebukola, for his role in the development of the curriculum and described him as the chief architect of the curriculum.
Also speaking was Professor Attahiru Jega, a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), who remarked that the CCMAS was a step in the right direction.

This is a very important contribution to the process of repositioning the educational system in Nigeria. It is wonderful that this has happened under the current minister of education, Adamu Adamu,” he said, “because the new curriculum is without a doubt a tremendous value addition to repositioning our education system.”

In addition, Professor Ruqqayattu Rufa’i, who had previously served as Minister of Education, urged those who were being trained in the new curriculum to move quickly in order to bring the training to a number of different universities.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the event also saw tributes paid to the late Professor Idris Abdulkadir and Professor Nimi Briggs. Additionally, the event saw the unveiling of a book in honour of the minister entitled “Repositioning Nigerian Educational System; the Ministerial Footprints of Adamu Adamu.” (NAN)
