Yoweri Museveni has attributed Africa’s underdevelopment to poor education which has over the years robbed the continent of quality and skilled human resources.
President Museveni said human resource is critical to the development of any nation adding that a literate but unskilled human capital is a partial achievement.
He was addressing what he termed ‘strategic bottlenecks in Africa’s progress’ among which he listed as infrastructural development and private sector involvement.
President Museveni,who was speaking at the 2013 convocation lecture for the Nigeria Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), in his lecture examined issues surrounding education and national development.
He also highlighted the incessant crises that have become the aftermath of sectarianism. A matter he said has robbed many African countries, including Nigeria of peace, adequate national planning and wholesome development while countries like China and Japan continue to thrive upon the same resources.
President Museveni has been in the west African nation on a two day working visit. On Tuesday, he held bilateral talks with his Nigerian counterpart and hot Goodluck Jonathan.
