    Oyo govt. to reintroduce Open-Day in public primary schools

    The Oyo State government has announced plans to reintroduce the Open-day system in public primary schools across the state.

    Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Sunday through the state Ministry of Information.

    According to the statement, Adeniran disclosed this during his state-wide interactive session with Head-teachers in the state.

    He  said when reintroduced, the Open-Day will give parents opportunity to visit their children in schools to get firsthand insights into their children’s performance.

    He said it would also afford parents the opportunity to speak to their children’s teachers on how to further improve those children.

    He said the state government would also employ more strategies as part of measures to complement its absolute commitment to improve the basic education sector.

    The SUBEB boss said the reintroduced system would be an improved adaptation of the moribund open-day, noting that the system would make parents more responsible towards their children in public schools.

    “We will reintroduce the Open-day system into our public schools system, because we realise that this will complement Governor Seyi Makinde’s free education policy.

    “Parents need to be responsible for their children’s progress in schools,” he said.

    Adeniran, who stressed that being a teacher required patience and great discipline, urged teachers to ensure their pupils compete favourably with their contemporaries in reading and writing skills.

    He said the doors of the state government was open to suggestions and ideas that would further build capacity of the teaching workforce in Oyo state.

    According to him, the present government is doing so much to improve pupils’ reading culture by providing running grants to schools and building facilities, among others.

    “The state government is also presently seeking more ways of improving the lot of teachers, especially those in the rural areas,” he said.

    He, however, stressed that education remained the greatest asset the state government could bequeath its citizens.

    Illegal fees: Oyo govt. suspends 16 teachers

    Oyo State Government has ordered the immediate suspension of 13 primary school head teachers, two assistant head teachers and a classroom teacher for alleged extortion and various misconducts.

    Dr Nureni Adeniran, Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OSUBEB), gave the order during an inspection tour of some schools in Ibadan metropolis. 

    According to a statement by Adeniran’s Media Aide, Olamide Adeniji, the board handed down the suspension to the erring teachers due to established facts met on ground at the various schools they supervised.

    He also confirmed that the teachers were indicted of insubordination, refusal to comply with posting instructions and illegal collection of fees from pupils.

    Adeniran added that the suspended teachers would face a disciplinary committee set up by the board.

    According to him, the committee has been mandated to ensure thorough probe of the allegations and give all concerned fair hearing.

    He said that the state would not tolerate inequity and gross indiscipline amongst teachers.

    It would be recalled that Oyo State Government, after announcing free and qualitative education in May 2019, also approved the payment of N526 million running-grants to primary and secondary schools for first term of 2019/2020 session.

    The schools were expected to submit records of disbursements to the state government at the end of each term.

    The SUBEB chairman said: “It was during our tour of schools that we discovered failure of some teachers to comply with posting instructions, while some of them were collecting illegal money from the pupils, despite reiteration of the free-education policy of this administration.

    “So far, we have discovered that some saboteurs are among the teachers, who are flouting the state government’s directives and pulling down our efforts to sanitise the teaching system in the state,” he stated.

    Adeniran described the acts of the teachers as unruly, adding that the government would set up a standing disciplinary committee to handle the misdemeanor.

    “We discovered that the absence of supervision and monitoring of education activities in the state has given so much room for impunity and indiscipline. We will not allow this to happen henceforth,” he added.

    Speaking further, the SUBEB chairman said : “This will serve as a deterrent to saboteurs among head teachers in the state.

    “They shall know henceforth, that the state government will not tolerate indiscipline.”

     He said that the state’s stance to put a stop to quackery and indiscipline in the teaching profession remained unchanged and urged recalcitrant teachers to desist from illegal acts.

    The chairman said that Governor Seyi Makinde-led government would not relent in creating a conducive teaching environment for teachers, through provision of infrastructure, payment of running-grants and prompt payment of salaries.

    He, however, warned teachers not to take the administration’s compassion for timidity.

    Oyo govt decries shoddy job by contractor

    The Oyo State Government on Tuesday decried the poor quality  of job executed by contractor handling the 2017 FGN-yo SUBEB intervention project at Celestial Church of Christ High School, Ibadan.

    Dr Nureni Adeniran, Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), expressed the dissatisfaction during an on-the-spot inspection to projects sites in Ibadan.

    Adeniran, while speaking at the school, located at Oke-Ado, Ibadan, described the job as shoddy, stating that the state government would not tolerate inferior jobs by any contractor.

    He appealed to contractors to always consider the lives of children and staff members who would occupy the school buildings while carrying out their jobs.

    He said: “Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration cherishes the lives of these children and we will not permit this kind of job that lacks quality. 

    “As such, the contractor must return to site to correct the defects on the building.”

    The SUBEB boss noted that there were several cracks on the school building and on the columns on the fences which were not properly fitted for aesthetic purposes. 

    Adeniran also expressed dissatisfaction at the failure of the contractor to install security lights on the school premises. 

    He said that the security lights would serve as checks against any intended burglary.

    “It is obvious that the contractor has not finished his job. He needs to return to the site to complete his job,” he said.

    The Chairman, however, hinted that St. Michael’s Primary School, Apata, Ibadan was one of the beneficiaries of the 2018 intervention projects.

    He said that in fulfilment of his promise, the school would, as a matter of urgency, receive a block of three classrooms, four compartment of toilets and a borehole.

    Adeniran had earlier visited the school, where he observed that the school was short of necessary  facilities.

    The management of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) has commiserated with the family of a deceased member of staff, Mrs Abosede Otun.

    The Nigeria News Agency reports that Otun was, until her demise, a senior teaching staff of the Board attached to Community Primary School 1, Olopomewa.

    Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman of the board, said in a statement issued on Monday in Ibadan that while Adedeji survived the accident, although with some injuries, Otun, however, lost her life.

    “The incident is very unfortunate; she will be sorely missed in the teaching service of Oyo SUBEB, especially for her disciplined lifestyle and dedication to duty,” Adeniran said.

    He prayed God to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest and comfort her family.

    The SUBEB chairman said that arrangements had been made to bring the body of the deceased to Ibadan, adding that would also ensure the injured Adedeji was given a comprehensive medical attention.

    Oyo govt. lauds JICA’s intervention projects

    The Oyo State Government on Wednesday commended the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for its donations toward the development of education in the state.

    Nigeria News Agency reports that this is contained in a statement by Dr Wasiu Olatunbosun, the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism.

    According to the Commissioner, Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman of Oyo State Universal Basic Education spoke while receiving JICA representatives in his office.

    He said JICA gesture had increased the educational facilities in the State.

    He commended JICA and by extension, the Japanese Government for their unalloyed commitment and provision of facilities, which had contributed to the overhauling and improvement of the State’s Basic Education.

    Adeniran said, “Your intervention projects are timely, because they came at the time the Basic Education system was in need of them.

    “We are very happy to receive you in Oyo state. On behalf of the State government, we express our appreciation to JICA for considering Oyo State worthy of those projects, at the time they gave us.

    “We believe Government is a continuum, and most importantly, the projects you gave us were for the good people of Oyo State.

    “We thank you so much for your immense contribution’’.

    While pledging the State Government’s commitment to maintain the facilities, he also assured them of the Board’s readiness to assist the team, on its post-construction evaluation of the projects in the State, without any hesitation.

    “Perhaps, you need our assistance for the success of your post-construction evaluation, our officers are on ground to render such assistance,” he said.

    Earlier, Dr Ruiko Hino, Programme Officer International Development Research Institute, Tokyo, on behalf of the visiting team, said the visit would give room for feedback on the state of facilities to the Japanese and Nigerian governments.

    He said, “JICA under the auspices of the Japanese Government had donated 231 classrooms to 30 selected primary schools in the State.

    66 Oyo primary schools to benefit from UBEC programme

    The Oyo State Government, in collaboration with the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), has selected 66 public primary schools to benefit from UBEC School-Based Management Committee-School Improvement Programme (SBMC-SIP).

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the 66 schools were selected from the three senatorial districts in the state.

    This was contained in a statement made available to NAN in Ibadan on Tuesday by Dr Wasiu Olatunbosun, the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism.

    The statement quoted Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) as saying that government was doing this as part of UBEC’s new strategy to involve communities in school management.

    Adeniran was said to have revealed this while speaking with members of the various School-Based Management Committees across the state in his office on Tuesday.

    He enjoined them to adhere strictly to the action plans approved by UBEC and see the opportunity as a mandate to serve their communities selflessly.

    The chairman urged management of the benefiting schools to make judicious use of the funds disbursed to them to improve the standard of education in the state, saying that the project was dear to Gov. Seyi Makinde’s heart.

    “I urge you to please spend the funds disbursed to you judiciously and on the action plans approved by UBEC, as every kobo spent would be accounted for,” he said.

    He warned them to be wary of anyone who might want to extort them, with the claim that Oyo SUBEB management was asking for ‘returns’.

    Adeniran said: “Our attention has been drawn to the activities of syndicates extorting money from unsuspecting SBMC members, under the pretence of returns for the management of the board.

    “Please disregard such information, as it is false and misleading,” he said.

    The SUBEB chairman stressed that anybody fingered in the extortion would be investigated and appropriately dealt with within the ambits of the law.

    He described the programme as a boost to the School-Based Management Committee – School Improvement Programme (SBMC-SIP).

    According to him, the policy is a strategy that will create opportunities for SBMCs to manage the schools in their respective communities.

    He also expressed optimism that the programmes would increase enrolment, retention, completion and transition in the basic education sub- sector as well as help address the challenges of out-of-school-children in the state.

    “As we look into ways of addressing the challenges of out-of- school children in the state, it is our belief that this programme will go a long way in increasing enrolments in our public schools.

    “The policy will strengthen partnership between our public schools and the communities involved.

    “It will further improve the schools and encourage community leaders around those schools to be involved in the planning, management and maintenance of school properties,” Adeniran said.

    Oyo seeks stakeholders’ collaboration on implementation of BESDA

    The Oyo State Government on Friday called for collaboration among stakeholders to bring back out-of-school-children and monitor them for the development of education in the state.

    Prof. Daud Shangodoyin, the Commissioner for Education, stated this in Ibadan at a sensitisation programme for stakeholders on Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA).

    Shangodoyin in his address urged participants at the event to join hands with the government to achieve its set goals on education.

    “The Oyo State anthem says it all, we all need is to cooperate to bring back out of school children, knowledge is key, even God said this in the holy books.

    “In view of this, World Bank, Universal Basic Education and Oyo state government collaborated to bring BESDA initiative.

    “We want all of us to work to identify where these children are, persuade and bring them to the fold as well as monitor them to progress in their studies.

    “Mokola and Iwo bridges for instance are flash points where these children are found, if we bring them in from these places, we will build a good future for them.

    “Let us all work together and bring these children back, some may have even outgrown primary school level, there is provision to adequately absorb them in various centres built for the purpose of this programme.

    “We can work together to place them properly. If you neglect these children, they will pose danger to your wards in the future.

    “Education allocation has been increased to 22 percent and Gov. Makinde has pledged to keep supporting the sector,” he said.

    He noted that the government was doing a lot to improve infrastructure and would distribute 64,000 chairs in all schools before the end of 2019.

    Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), in his address enlightened the stakeholders on the reasons for high number of out of school children in the state.

    “Some of the reasons are due to long distance from home to school, lack of parental monitoring, street begging, child labour and unwanted teenage pregnancy,” he said.

    He stressed the need for them to educate their wards to be useful to the society and family.

    “There will be designated centres to train out of school children who are above primary and secondary levels in the state. We don’t want them to loiter around during school hours.

    “For those at the Islamic centres and traditional centres, we will introduce western education to them at their various centres.

    “Poverty, divorce, illiteracy and past government policies on education led to the increase in the number of out-of-school children over the time.

    “This made Oyo state to be ranked 26th in education performance chart in Nigeria, hence the various government initiatives to make the state a pace setter that it should be,’’ he said.

    Adeniran noted that the present administration had taken steps to correct the anomalies in the education sector through various programmes.

    “The governor has given free education at all levels to reduce the incidence of drop out in schools and increase enrollment in schools.

    “Provision of exercise books for secondary school students, running grants for both primary and secondary schools students and payment of examination fee for students except for WAEC and NECO fees that will be paid by the parents.

    “Government also made provision for past questions compendium and free extramural lessons for final year students at both public and private sector.

    “All these are to reposition the education sector in the state,” Adeniran said.
