Thomas said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) in Minna on Wednesday that the Federal Government should deploy adequate resources to the sector, to address its endemic problems.
He noted that poor funding of education had left the system with myriads of problems with negative impact on quality and standard of education in the country.
He believed that proper funding of the education sector would end lingering face-off with members of Academic Staff Union of Universities and other unions in polytechnics and colleges of education.
Thomas lauded the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari in crushing Boko Haram insurgents in the North east, and said that the effort was possible due to the demonstartion of the required political will to secure the country.
He advised the government to adopt the same approach in confronting militants, kidnappers, badits and cattle rustlers operating across the country.
