At a time qualitative education has remained an expensive commodity in the country, an individual has chosen to bridge the gap by lifting hundreds of individuals out of the pit of Illiteracy. A twitter user @sweetmomdee brought to the notice of Nigerians the developmental activities of Mr Moses Adi in Benue.
In Benue, my state, a certain Moses Adi, has built a school of international standard…for the poor. He charges no fees and receives only a maintenance fee of N5000 per child…which is still waived for parents who can’t afford it.@yinkanubi @Omojuwa @DrJoeAbah @Zahrahmusa

According to her, the school Seeds of Royalty Academy located in Gboko is built to international standards with all the attractions that exists in schools located in the cities. He is not a politician and he is not aspiring for any but he has chosen it upon itself to redefine what philanthropy is all about and wealthy Nigerians need to learn from him.
At the moment government at all levels have not given full attention to education, despite the fact that we are signatories to several agreements that seeks to make education qualitative and affordable, we are yet to act decisively on that. The government of Nigeria is also part of those championing the SDGs which has quality education as its Goal 4, three years after what has been the state of education in Nigeria?
What are the Indices showing the progress we are making towards the Goal 4 of the SDGs. These are critical unit of our life that remained untouched. Instead of developing education, what Government has done in recent times is to make it more expensive for the masses as seen in various states in the country including schools owned by the Federal Government. This simply means education is not a pressing issue for the government.
The actions of Moses Adi has shown that we still have many good spirited individuals in the country that are concerned with the rot in the education sector and has taken the bull by the horn to correct the anomaly. Religious and corporate organizations are advised to emulate his gestures and do more for the Education Sector.
