Nigeria: FG Blames Ebonyi Govt Over Poor Supervision of Nomadic Education

Abakaliki — THE National Commission for Nomadic Education, Thursday, blamed both Ebonyi State Government and local councils for the poor supervision of nomadic education in the state.

The Commission also expressed worry that less attention was being paid to the recruitment and welfare of nomadic teachers in the 13 LGAs as such development had over the years, hampered the learning and acquisition of nomadic education.

Acting Executive Secretary for NCNE, Mallam Ibrahim Yamta, who stated this during a visit to some nomadic schools in the state, called on Ebonyi State government to put modalities in place for employment of more teachers and regular supervision of all nomadic schools across the state.

He argued that Ebonyi as an agrarian state, could not be compared to other states in terms of establishment of nomadic schools as well as maintenance of structures built by the federal government for the acquisition of nomadic education.

He also expressed displeasure over the dilapidating nature of most nomadic schools built by the federal government to aid the acquisition of nomadic education in the state.
