Abuja - The Federal Ministry of Education said lack of accurate data may cause Nigeria to fail in its obligation of providing the international community information on its critical sectors.
The Permanent Secretary, Dr MacJohn Nwaobiala, made the observation on Monday in Abuja at a meeting with the National Technical Committee on the Implementation of Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRSIN).
According to him, lack of accurate data also means that Nigeria may not be able to provide data about education at relevant forums.
Nwaobiala commended the Federal Government for developing BRISIN for the purpose of providing basic infrastructure for data collection and storage in the nation.
He acknowledged that BRSIN would assist the ministry to successfully fight dearth of education data for the development of the sector.
