    National Personnel Audit: UBEC urges Oyo Govt. to recruit more teachers

    The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has called on the Oyo State government to recruit more teachers into the public primary schools.

    The Executive Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission, Dr Hamid Bobboyi, gave the charge in Ibadan on Friday, as part of the 2022 National Personnel Audit (NPA) team’s recommendation to the state government.

    Bobboyi represented by the Head of the NPA team deployed to Oyo State, Mr Muhammed Bello, an engineer said the need to recruit more teachers became manifest during the just concluded Personnel Audit Exercise in the state by the commission in collaboration with Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYO SUBEB).

    He stated that the present shortage of qualified teachers was dangerous to the qualitative education  the Governor Seyi-Makinde led administration is offering pupils in the state.

    Bobboyi, however, commended the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board for cooperating with its Audit team in the conduct of the National Personnel Audit Exercise.

    “We urge the Oyo State government to look into recruitment of teachers into the public primary schools in the State,” he said.

    He pledged the commitment of the commission to look into other areas to move basic education forward in Oyo State.

    He added that the National Personnel Audit exercise was a major activity in data gathering used in planning and development of education.

    Bobboyi said that the commission discovered a lot of progress made, compared to the previous exercise.

    According to him, “Though entry is still ongoing, we would give the Board updates on the list and give the State government accurate data in order to plan and develop basic education.”

    He solicited the cooperation of other stakeholders in education in ensuring accurate data so as to know where every Nigerian child of school age was at any given time.

    Responding, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni  Adeniran admitted to the acute shortage of teachers in the state.

    Adeniran said the State Government is making efforts to look into fresh recruitment and replacement of seconded teachers in the state.

    “We are aware of the shortage of teachers in our primary schools. The State Government under the leadership of our dear Gov. Seyi Makinde is making efforts to ensure the problem is resolved timeously,” Adeniran said.

    He added that the state government will continue to collaborate with the Federal Government and other relevant agencies to ensure the public education sector in the State thrives.

    Adeniran further said  that school owners and proprietors operating illegally in the State would be made to face the law.

    He warned such schools to regularise their registration by visiting the Ministry of Education, Ibadan.

    He reiterated the Oyo State government’s commitment at revamping education in the state.

    Adeniran, however, commended the National Personnel Audit team’s report on data of schools in the State, adding that the update will help the state in planning its education in the forthcoming fiscal budget.

    Oyo, Osun govts. set to reconstruct 83.6km Ibadan-Osogbo road

    Oyo and Osun state governments have began process for reconstruction of the 83.6-kilometre Ibadan-Osogbo road.

     

    Oyo State Commissioner for Public Works, Prof. Daud Sangodoyin and his Osun counterpart, Mr Oluremi Omowaye, made this known on Monday at a news conference, held in Ibadan.

     

    Sangodoyin said that the process for the award 29.2 kilometers of the road from Iwo Road interchange to Oyo State boundary, near Lalupon village, was at a final stage.

     

    The commissioner, while speaking on the benefits of the collaboration between the two states in reconstructing the road, said that the projects, when completed, would enhance regional integration.

     

    He also said that the road would boost security of road users and communities on the axis.

     

    Sangodoyin further explained that both states, with comparative advantage in agriculture, needed to expand their economy by focusing on agriculture and food security.

     

    “Therefore, putting the road in good condition will ease movement of agricultural produce from farms to cities.

     

    “It will also make vehicular movements smooth, thereby reducing the time spent while traveling from Osogbo to Ibadan and vice visa,” he said.

     

    Corroborating his Oyo State counterpart, Omowale said that Osun government would handle the remaining 54.4- kilometer stretch of the road from DeleYesa in Osogbo to its boundary, near Lalupon.

     

    He said what was paramount to the governments of the two states was infrastructural development that would make their people to enjoy dividends of democracy.

     

    The commissioner said that although Osun government was being controlled by All Progressives Congress (APC) while Oyo is being governed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the development of the people of the two states was beyond party affiliations.

     

    He assured that the projects would be flagged-off by the two governors, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola and Mr Seyi Makinde in July.

    Omowale said that modalities for the award of the two contracts, including the cost, time frame and other matters,would be made public during the commencement of the projects.
