Commissioner of Education

Bello, who was represented by Washington Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology Mr. Wemi Jones, said his Administration had made education a top priority, especially Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The governor emphasized that his commitment to renewing the education sector in the state required the allocation of 30 percent to education in the 2022 budget, even beyond the UNESCO benchmark of 26 percent.

This, he said, has been reflected in the execution of massive educational infrastructure projects, as well as the continued hiring of qualified high school teachers throughout the state.

Bello said that in addition to building school infrastructure, the government also pledged to equip schools with well-qualified teachers.

He explained that the recruitment of teachers also reached the final stage after aptitude tests and oral interviews were concluded, saying that the final list was awaiting final approvals.

He added that the state had enacted the education law, which authorized the ministry to sanction any person or group that tried to jeopardize the government’s efforts to renew education in the state.

School Adoption and Mentoring Program

He stressed that the state government had shown sufficient commitment, hence the need for individuals and organizations to support the government’s efforts through its School Adoption and Mentoring Program.

Physics and Chemistry

He praised the donor, Ododo, for donating the 11,000 Physics and Chemistry textbooks to the state’s public schools, describing it as “the industry’s biggest intervention so far.”

Furthermore, he revealed that another Kogi citizen had also promised to provide math textbooks for students.

He urged all well-meaning political appointees, individuals and organizations to emulate them, the state’s adoption program and school tutoring.

However, he warned school principals and teachers against commercializing the textbooks, saying they were not for sale, but would be given to students free of charge.

He stressed that the ministry had put mechanisms in place to monitor the distribution of textbooks, and warned that people who make mistakes would be punished.

The governor advised students to justify the donor’s use of the textbooks.

reports that many dignitaries, royal parents, alumni of the school and relevant education stakeholders attended the occasion.
