May 3, 2024

NGOZI, May 3rd (ABP) – At its meetings on 22 and 23 April in Ngozi (northern Burundi), the central committee of the CNDD-FDD party insisted on upgrading the education sector in Burundi.

In his message to the press on 24 April 2024, the party’s Secretary General, Réverien Ndikuriyo, delivering the conclusions of the meeting, said that the CNDD-FDD would like every Burundian household to return to education at home by emphasizing the country’s traditional values.

In the school and academic training curricula, courses should be adapted to the objectives of the country’s visions, in that case those of an emerging Burundi in 2040 and a developed Burundi in 2060.

Mr Ndikuriyo spoke of the need to restore and enhance boarding facilities in public secondary schools, as well as to revitalize accommodation and catering services in the country’s public universities in order to maximize learning conditions and produce an elite that is equal to the challenges facing the country.

In terms of quality, the scientific and technical sections need to be upgraded. For medical courses in particular, the training of medical technicians and doctors, including the most specialized, must be a priority in order to produce health care providers capable of providing medical services that are in demand abroad. That will even enable patients who travel.

That will even enable patients who travel to advanced countries for medical care to have it on the site, saving resources and time for other investments.

Finally, in higher education establishments, students submitting final reports or research papers should choose subjects that contribute to the country’s development. Talented young people will be identified and supported to produce works that can help the country move forward in terms of development.
