Ekiti SUBEB Chairman Commends Management for Effective Delivery on UBE Activities

The Executive Chairman of Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board, Prof. Femi Akinwumi has commended the management and staff of the Board for their outstanding productivity which has translated into effective delivery of all Universal Basic Education (UBE) activities in the State in the last one year.

Speaking at the annual rendition of departmental activities of the Board in Ado-Ekiti, Prof. Akinwumi said the efforts of the management Staff have contributed to the achievements of the Board in the year under review.

The programme which also included rendering of accounts of stewardship by the Education Secretaries from the 16 Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) enabled the Directors and Education Secretaries to give reports on activities and programmes under their purview from January to December 2023.

The SUBEB boss commended the officials for their exceptional service delivery in the basic education sector which cuts across the academic development of pupils, capacity building of teachers and staff development, as well as project execution and maintenance, financial management, regular monitoring of school activities, accurate data collection and dissemination, effective media coverage and publicity among others.

He called for greater synergy among the various departments to achieve a common goal, stressing that the cohesiveness among the various sections and units would continue to make the board a united, strong and result-oriented agency of government in the State.

While reacting to reported cases of burglary, theft, looting of schools’ properties and encroachment of school land in some communities, Prof. Akinwumi advised on the need to adopt the Basic Education Surveillance Team (BEST) to guard against this social malaise manifesting in some urban centres in the state adding that security of schools should be a collective responsibility of all stakeholders.

Addressing the Education Secretaries, Akinwumi urged them to ensure regular monitoring of the schools in their areas of jurisdiction for optimal UBE delivery and to justify the huge financial resources being committed to basic education by the Governor Oyebanji led administration.

The Chairman also used the opportunity to warn against collection of illegal frees from pupils, stressing that the free and compulsory education policy of the State government is still subsisting and must be strictly adhered to.

Present at the event were the Board Commissioners for Human Resource Management and Project Management, Dr Olufunke Fajobi and Dr. Kayode Adeoye, respectively as well as the Permanent Secretary, Mr Afolabi Adebiyi. The Commissioners urged the management team to rededicate themselves to their duties in order to take the Board to greater and enviable heights.
