UBEC tasks SUBEBS on stakeholder engagement
The Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, has said the success of the UBE programme will depend largely on meaningful stakeholder engagement, participation and support from national, state, LGEA and community levels.
Executive Secretary of UBEC, Dr Hammid Bobboyyi, stated this in Kano at a 5-day training for officials of UBEC and State Universal Basic Education Boards, SUBEBs, on stakeholder engagement in the delivery of basic education in the country.
A statement by the commission said the meeting which comes on the heels of renewed efforts by UBEC management to reinvigorate the mobilization component of UBE, seeks to lay a solid foundation for effective UBE delivery services especially at the grassroots.
Represented by UBEC’s Deputy Executive Secretary, Services, Dr. Yakubu Gambo, Bobboyyi tasked Directors of Social Mobilization at SUBEB level to serve as change agents for effective mobilization of resources for the attainment of access, quality and equity goals in the delivery of basic education.
The Executive Secretary further informed participants of ongoing efforts in reviving the School Based Management Committee, SBMC, intervention as well as the community initiated self-help components of the UBE programme.
Officials of UNICEF, DFID and Kano SUBEB who attended the event, applauded the management of UBEC for taking the initiative to revive the mobilization process which they considered key to the attainment of the full potential of the UBE programme.
