Malala Urges Nigeria to Prioritise Education System

Nigeria should focus on improving its education system, Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai said on Monday during a visit to the West African country where nearly half of primary-aged children are not enrolled in school.

Africa's most populous country has some 10 million children of school age who do not attend, government figures state. Primary school enrolment is just 54 percent.

Yousafzai, a Pakistani education activist who came to prominence when a Taliban gunman shot her in the head in 2012, was named a U.N. Messenger of Peace in April to promote girls' education. She has become a regular speaker on the global stage.
