“It’s not only about education, but it’s also about quality education," she said.

She added that the inadequate number of teachers to teach in the programme would compromise on the quality of education the students need.

“When they have the education, the teachers are not enough to teach them so they don’t get the education of quality they need. A lot of schools have been left hanging, the completion of these schools has not been happening,” she further noted.
