The president had promised  to be committed t quality education in Nigeria.

During the 2015 election campaign, Buhari promised to improve Nigeria’s teacher-student ratio by employing thousands of teachers across the country.

Under the N-Power scheme handled by the office of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, the Buhari government said it has employed 150,000 teachers to serve in communities across the country.

“Already 200,000 unemployed Nigerians have been selected, including 150,000 who would teach and serve in their communities,” Laolu Akande, Osinbajo’s spokesman, said via a statement.

“The balance is made up of 30,000 who would serve as Agric Extension Workers and 20,000 who would serve as public health workers.

“Each of the unemployed graduates would get a N30,000 monthly stipend, and also get an electronic tablet that would be packaged with several applications that would train and empower the participants.”
