Federal Government to include software development in new educational curriculum

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the Federal Government will change the educational curriculum in such a way that will enable pre-primary school pupils to learn software development and coding.

Osinbajo said this during the 50th National Annual Conference of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria held in Abuja.

Speaking at the event with the theme, ‘Stand Out’, the Vice President said that many countries across the world had begun to shift focus from natural to human resources development.

He said that any youth, who lacked Information and Communication Technology skills and knowledge, would become unemployable in the future, stressing that this had informed the Federal Government’s decision to infuse educational development in its Economic Recovery and Growth Plan.
