Primary education is the first stage of formal education, coming before secondary school. It normally starts between the ages of 5 and 7, and was designed to give a sound basic education in reading and writing. Its main purpose is to establish a solid foundation for learning in young pupils.

Following the introduction of 'N-Power Teach' earlier this year, 2020, it is breathtaking that the Nigerian government has understood the importance of primary education, and how it contributes to the academic development of a young child.

At the inception of 'N-Power Teach', President Muhammadu Buhari had said that, the move will enhance the quality of pupils moving to secondary schools.

"We have created a dedicated platform under the National Social Investment Programme called 'N-Power Teach', which engages qualified graduates to man the gaps of basic education delivery in Nigeria," Buhari said.

Memorably, during the inauguration of the National Economic Council (NEC) for 2019-2023 at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, in the year, 2019, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari reemphasized the impact of the first nine years of a child's schooling, which encompasses Nursery 1-3 and Primary 1-6.

His words, "It is indeed a crime for any parent to keep his child out of school for this period..."

"Ensuring proper education during the first nine years of schooling means that our children start off their lives with some discipline and education".

"They will be safeguarded from roaming the streets, and protected from all the evil influences that assail idle hands and idle minds," he said

Recently, Lagos State Government has seen the need for the Reformation of Primary schools, via, hosting capacity building programmes for all public primary school teachers across the State, which aims at developing the use of the tech gadgets, as a medium to pass instructions in basic schools.

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has emphasized that the capacity building programmes, can go a long way in shaping what the pupils will become tomorrow.

He said: "We are changing the mode of instruction in our primary school and we are employing technology to achieve this. By this, we are creating a situation where school will be attractive to children, irrespective of social background. We believe the first effort to shape their future is to make them look forward to going to school every day in their formative years. When we properly prepare them at that cognitive stage, we have carved a good future for them.

"Delivering these instructions is critical. This is why we introduced this intensive training to boost the capacity of our teachers to deliver and support these children at this critical stage. We believe that teachers are the first point of contact between the children and their future. The six hours spent with teachers can go a long way in shaping what the pupils will become tomorrow."

However, As Lagos State has set the pace in capacity building and primary school reformation, all state governments should go into reformation of all Nigerian Primary Schools in such a way that will enhance the academic development of young children.

Primary schools should be well reformed, knowing fully well that the future of every nation lies on the shoulders of the young people. Primary Schools should be viewed as foundational platforms, where future leaders and luminaries are raised.
