For four days, the acting Chairman of the FCT Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Sule Al-Hassan, recently led other top functionaries of the board on a knowledge/experience sharing and peer review visit to Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LSUBEB).
It was also designed for the boards to compare notes and exchange ideas to achieve greater outcomes in providing national basic education services.
In his remarks, the LSUBEB chairman Wahab Alawiye-King said the state “has the capacity in terms of building human and material resources.”
A LSUBEB member Sherifat Adedoyin noted that the board was focused on the psychomotor of children and ensure that children are developed mentally.
“We develop our pupils mentally. Children love to play, and we ensure that the environment is conducive for them to play. In Lagos state, we leave no child behind, and we see to their affairs from time to time. We also monitor the environment in which they learn,” Adedoyin stated.
A permanent board member, Bayo Adefuye, disclosed that the board could monitor everything about the teachers, even the computer tablets, to make their work easier.
As part of the activities, Alawiye-King, other board members and the delegates of UBEB visited some state and federal government intervention projects.
During the tour, the UBEB team commended the LSUBEB with Al-Hassan, saying his administration will ensure that every child gets a quality education and builds teachers’ capacity.
