Politics of access to education: the Nigerian story. [CREATE annual lecture]


Professor Pai Obanya, Emeritus Professor of Ibadan University, Nigeria, spoke about his country’s potential and suggested political solutions, including electoral reforms and the end of overcentralisation at the CREATE Annual Lecture. Obanya highlighted how politics and education policy influence each other through a continuous process which has failed the education sector, particularly in the last decade. A number of reforms were recommended.
