Ogun State SUBEB Set to Understudy Oyo SUBEB’s Education Reform as Oyo SUBEB partners with SGB on Quality Education.
Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board (OgunSUBEB) is poised to understudy the Basic education reforms of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB).
The decision followed success of the basic education in Oyo State, particularly the creative and innovative ways Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) is being executed in Oyo State.
This was revealed when a team from OgunSUBEB paid a working visit to the Executive Chairman, OYOSUBEB, Dr. Nureni Adeniran on Thursday.
BESDA is a Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) initiative, funded by World Bank to ensure out-of-school children return back to school and are retained in schools.
Receiving the visitors from Ogun State, Dr. Nureni Adeniran enjoined the team to ensure they create a cordial working relationship with other relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies in Ogun State, to achieve the aim of taking children off the streets, just as it is being done in Oyo State.
“With the transparency of the board, public schools have witnessed transformation. BESDA was established to cater for out-of-school children in the state, while we provide instructional materials and training of teachers and non-teaching workers. We have had a cordial working relationship with all relevant stakeholders in the implementation of BESDA”, he said.
Dr. Adeniran further expressed the Board’s readiness to guide Ogun-SUBEB in the right path, by providing essential details on how to achieve Better Education Service Delivery for All in the neighboring state.
He further revealed that Oyo State’s approach under the leadership of Engr. Seyi Makinde is delivery of free basic education to all children, and making it qualitative and exciting for them.
Dr. Adeniran added that on the list of decisions of the Board is to instill the Omoluabi ethos of the Yoruba culture in each child. This, he believes, will preserve the identity and values of the Yoruba culture.
