UBEC FUND: OGUN TO ACCESS N514M

Ogun State Government says it plans to access the over N74 million Special Education Fund and N440 million teachers professional development fund provided by the presidency through the universal basic education commission (UBEC).
Governor Ibikunle Amosun who made this known while receiving the executive secretary of the commission, Alhaji Sulaimon Dikko, at the governor’s office in Abeokuta, said the state needs UBEC’s financial assistance to address the problems of congestions in public schools in the state.
The governor expressed concern over the inadequate furniture in some of the schools, following the rise in pupils’ enrollment, forcing most of them to sit on the floor to receive lecture.
Amosun said his administration intends to expose pupils in the public junior secondary schools, to practical vocational works in private companies operating in the state.

The state government, he said is currently holding talks with the companies to accommodate some of the pupils for practical experience.
Earlier, the UBEC executive secretary had reminded the governor of the failure of the Ogun state government to access the special education fund and teachers’ professional development fund since 2013.
