A professor at the University of Lagos, Murtala Bidmos has said that the Nigerian government has not began implementing its education policies.
He was speaking on the maiden episode of the Education Podcast released last Monday.
According to him, a committee of experts are usually involved in each of the occasions the policies are made but little or no effort is made to materialise their works.
The professor who recently retired from the Department of Arts and Social Sciences Education at UNILAG also flayed government over the poor funding of the education sector while also commending it for introducing some incentives for teacher-trainees and teacher education in general.
Bidmos, a Fulbright scholar, whose specialisation is in Islamic Studies also spoke on the recent physical assault in an Islamic school.
He cautioned against government interference in the affairs of Muslims while also condemning the teachers who sanctioned the excessive caning of the madrasah students irrespective of their offences.
He called for internal reforms within the Muslim community. Citing examples of other Islamic schools where discipline is ensured without necessarily going that far, he said Muslims can learn from one another.
The Education Podcast is an initiative of EduCeleb geared towards engaging thought leaders on matters that affect the education sector.
Its initiators have already recorded a number of episodes to be released weekly. Topics of discourse are of a wide range and are all in line with touching on every area within the education system.
