In a paper titled Revitalising the Nigeria Education System in a Digital Era, Professor Yalams said Nigeria can only maintain the status of giant of africa, by reviewing its educational system in the areas of curriculum, teacher centered approach, content coverage, and provision of e-learning facilities.
