I’m running to make sure that by the end of this decade, more of the people from our constituency hold college degrees than any other constituency in Nigeria. I will initiate a program that will help our schools to hire and reward the best teachers, especially in math and science. I want to give more people from Anambra East and West constituency the chance to go to skill acquisition centers and learn the skills that local businesses are looking for right now. In the 21st century, higher education cannot be a luxury alone; it is an economic imperative that everybody should be able to afford. And I will make sure it happen if elected. I will make it my goal to ensure that every classroom has a quality and qualified teacher. As a federal lawmaker I will make sure that a bill that will be rewarding states if they regularly evaluate teachers for their effectiveness and compensate the best teachers for their success is pass into law.
