Nigeria's education sector still in doldrums

More than $1.3bn invested between 2009 and 2013 but some 10.5 million children still remain out of school, says UN.

    Despite allocating more than $1.3bn for its education sector between 2009 and 2013, Nigeria is still struggling to deliver good education to millions of children.

    In December last year the government allocated an additional $500m to improve the situation.

    However, some 10.5m children still remain out of school, according to the UN.
