ABUJA - Chairman of  the ministerial visitation panel to Federal Unity Colleges, Chief Sylvester Onoja, yesterday urged the Federal Government to establish Secondary Schools Commission without delay in order to arrest the dwindling standard of secondary education in NigeriaChief Onoja said the dismal performance of candidates in WASSCE, SSCE and NABTEB is traceable to the obvious lapses in the system.

His words: 'For too long, the secondary sector of our education system has been left to function at the whims and caprices of individuals, organisations and states. The sector continues to expand with no defined regulatory body. It is the most marginalised sector of the education sector.

The only available form of intervention by the Federal Government to public secondary schools, which was the Education Trust Fund, ETF, projects has now been stopped.
