Newly inaugurated minister of education, Adamu Adamu has revealed that it took him over a year to understand how the Federal Ministry of Education works after previously serving and being retained as head of the same agency by President Buhari.

He made this confessional statement while speaking to newsmen after being inaugurated alongside other Ministers, Adamu said he had to understand what education meant when he first got to the ministry.

He, however, added that he is returning home to his “family” after heading the Ministry for over three and a half years.

“We had labored over time on the strategic plan for the education and only to the point of implementation then we had to leave.

I had the opportunity to remind President Muhammadu Buhari that the nation was expecting so much from him.

“When we were sent here the first tenure, it took me one and half year to understand the ministry, it also took me as a surprise when I was re-assigned to the ministry of education. I had thought I would be sent to another ministry where I would have to learn all over again.

Now, I know that I am coming back to a family. You all are my teachers and hopefully, we will work well together again.“The reality is the confidence I reposed in the Permanent Secretary.

When I came here I had to get the idea of what education is and I could only see what is happening here after a year and a half” he said.

Also speaking on some his achievement in his first tenure as Minister of Education, Adamu said he worked hand-in-hand with the former Minister of State for Education Prof. Anthony Anwukah, to put together the Ministerial Strategic Plan (MSP 2016-2019) to the point of implementation before their tenure ended on May 2019.
