However, unfortunately, the educational system in Nigeria is plagued by a wide variety of issues. These include insufficient classrooms, teaching tools (projectors, computers, laboratories, and libraries), a shortage of qualified instructors, and a bad or polluted learning environment. There is also a lack of finance, which results in inadequate educational infrastructures. In addition to these shortcomings, our educational system is also beset by a number of social ills, including test malpractices, cultism, hooliganism, and corruption.
