Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State yesterday identified huge investment in education as reason nations like Singapore, India, Malaysia and other Asian Tigers are ahead of Nigeria.
Masari stated this yesterday at the commissioning of a study centre of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), at his hometown in Kafur Local Council Area of the state.
He explained that Nigeria began its developmental journey alongside many of the Asian Tigers, but they surpassed her after making huge investments in the education sector.
The governor said it was due to this that his administration had been making efforts at giving priority to education through investment and manpower development.
Part of such investment, he said, was the study centre, which the state government built donated to NOUN.
