Education Deputy Minister David Mabumba said this when he addressed Senior Education Officers from Northern and Muchinga Provinces at Mwenzo Girls secondary school in Nakonde.
Mr. Mabumba said government has embarked on a programme to build more higher learning institutions in all the provinces in order to improve education standards in the country.
He said that so far construction of two tertiary institutions in Muchinga Province has commenced and nearing completion.
Mr. Mabumba said that a University is being constructed in Chinsali district and a skills training institute at Isoka.
He said this is in line with the PF government policy of building more learning institutions in order to allow more people to have access to education in the country.
The Deputy Minister also noted that education standards in the country had started going down because of the limited number of schools.
The Minister further explained that it was for that reason that the PF government embarked on the construction of more secondary schools and universities in the country.
“As PF Government we are committed to build more secondary schools, Colleges in the country,” said Mr. Mabumba.
