Adamu Adamu, minister of education, says he knew nothing about the sector when President Muhammadu Buhari appointed him in 2015.
The minister spoke at a valedictory session with officials and heads of parastatals of the ministry on Thursday.
Adamu said at the time, he sought the support of some people with more knowledge of the sector to assist him with the policy documents needed for the ministry.
“I didn’t know anything about the education sector when I was appointed minister except superficially. But when Buhari decided to make me minister of education, I called some people to assist me to work on a policy document on education because I was a novice in the sector,” he said.
