Nigeria: Why We Included FCT Private Schools in Personnel Audit - Ubeb

Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Board (UBEB), Dr. Hamid Bobboyi, has said private schools in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are included in the national personnel audit to ensure quality education for the Nigerian child.

Bobboyi, who made this known when he paid a courtesy visit to the FCT UBEB, said the inclusion of private schools would aid planning and provision of amenities.

"We realised that there are certain areas where perhaps about 65 or 70 per cent of schools are private. We have to understand the facilities within these schools, their teachers' distributions and qualifications, because it is the Nigerian child that attends these schools," he said.

Bobboyi said the board hopes to use the data to be generated from the personnel audit to plan the repositioning of basic education in the territory.

"The auditing will ensure that we get data that can be used for planning, not only for the UBEB, but for the entire FCT. The data will be such that can be accessed online and used in a manner that will help us have real planning for basic education," he explained.

In his remarks, the Board Member I of the FCT UBEB, Usman Yahaya, commended the executive secretary for the visit and restated the readiness of the board to ensuring the success of the national personnel audit in the territory.
