The UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Mr Gordon Brown, says there are about 11 million out-of-school children in northeast Nigeria due to the destructive activities of the Boko Haram terrorists.
Brown, former British Prime Minister and chair of the Commission on Financing Education Opportunity, revealed in New York that the commission was already intervening in the situation.
The UN envoy explained that the commission was giving more funds to help the Nigerian education system move forward.
According to him, the commission and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo are already discussing ways to secure funds to address the education challenges confronting the northeast. Big thanks!
