The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has expressed satisfaction with the judicious utilisation of funds by the Kwara Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).
The Deputy Executive Secretary (Services) of UBEC, Mr Isiaka Kolawole, stated this on Thursday in Ilorin while speaking with newsmen shortly after inspecting some schools recently constructed by SUBEB.
Kolawole said Kwara was doing well in applying the UBEC funds on schools’ infrastructure.
”The state had missed a lot with blacklist before the present administration paid the backlog of its counterpart funds.
”So, I want to urge other states to emulate Kwara’s investments in the education sector,” the UBEC boss said.
The Chairman, Kwara SUBEB, Prof. Raheem Adaramaja, said the board was elated with the positive commendation from UBEC and that it would spur it to do more for the state.
He hinted that the board would from September, begin free distribution of textbooks to pupils on English language, Mathematics, Basic Sciences and Social Studies, starting with primary four, five and six.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the UBEC team inspected Burhanudeen LGEA School Ojagboro, Government Day Secondary School Amule and UBEC Model Smart School Adeta in Ilorin West Local Government Area of the state.
