Human capital development in nigeria is difficult to achieve because Our students are in school studying to pass exams, get good grades, and subsequently get good jobs.
They do this, without paying close attention to the application of the knowledge obtained from the theories to our challenges as a nation… That’s one of the major problems Nigeria have in the area of human capital development.
When our students finally graduate from the university, they would be subjected to 2weeks military/para-military trainings, and 5days skill acquisition trainings. What do you expect one to do with 5days skill acquisition training? Everybody should go and join force then.
This problem notwithstanding, we want to grow our economy and advance our technology. How do we intend to do this when we have vehemently refused to invest much into human capital development?
For me, it invariably suggests that our society is producing the same graduates that our society no longer need. Also, our policy makers are busy making the same policies that our economy no longer need. These are my thoughts.
