According to UNICEF, One in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria.

Even though primary education is officially free and compulsory, about 10.5 million of the country’s children aged 5-14 years are not in school. Only 61 percent of 6-11 year-olds regularly attend primary school and only 35.6 percent of children aged 36-59 months receive early childhood education.

In Lagos, the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS5), 2016/2017 conducted by the NBS and UNICEF published in 2018 gave an estimate of 229,264 out-of-school children. This issue calls for serious concern.
