Forever donning a skull cap with a white moustache reminiscent of the African he-goat, Dr Chris Ngige cuts the perfect picture of a village palm wine tapper. But please don’t be fooled by his looks, the man is far more intelligent than he appears. Having presided over endless rounds of […]

As Nigeria joins other countries to mark the 28th anniversary of World Teachers’ Day with the theme ‘The Transformation of Education Begins with Teachers’, Olusegun Fashakin examines teachers’ preparedness to lead the transformation.
