On Monday, the Speaker made the remark while delivering a paper titled 'Building Back Better: Creating A New Framework For Tertiary Education In Nigeria In The Twenty-First Century' at the University of Lagos' 52nd Convocation.

I also believe that the National Assembly should investigate Section 131 (d) of the 1999 constitution in order to raise the minimum educational qualification for persons aspiring to be future Presidents of Nigeria and other top offices, including the National Assembly, from the current minimum requirement of a Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent. Gbajabiamila stated.

We should raise the minimum educational requirement in the same way that we have reduced the age for eligibility to run for those offices. It will be another step toward reforming our electoral system and providing the country with strong leadership.

According to the Speaker, the foundations of Nigeria's educational system are still rooted in a different era.
