Habib told Newsmen in Awka on Tuesday that the country’s schools curricula should compete favorable with those of advanced countries to a large extent.
“Entrepreneurial studies are the right step to save our children from the confusions that becloud them after they have graduated from school.
“Our school curriculum is very much acceptable.
“What is needed is adding money making venture skills from primary to tertiary level so that after graduating, they will not all depend on white collar jobs for survival.
“If taken serious, our children will produce things great for the nation and by extension relieve government the onerous task of providing jobs for the always graduating teeming youths of the nation,’’ he said.
He called on authorities concerned to employ the best hands while inculcating morality into the mindset of the children.
“Putting round pegs in round holes should be our watch word when employing teachers to teach so that only those that have the passion of bringing the best out of the children will be employed.
“Pay them well as in the case in Malaysia where teachers make the children to imbibe the spirit of right moral upbringing from early stages of their lives because they are well paid, ‘’ he said.
