Foundation to train 120 monitors
The Executive Director, HDI, Olufunsho Owasonoye disclosed this recently when her organisation held a sensitization programme for stakeholders in Ojo area of Lagos.
According to her, each of the twenty local governments will have at least six monitors to go round to verify UBE projects being executed by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).
She said that stakeholders’ engagement is a preparation to nominate the monitors. Owasonoye said collaboration among stakeholders in the education subsector would help ensure all-round development of the sector, especially basic primary education.
“We are looking at quality basic education and effective service delivery. And government cannot do it alone. So, we here to sensitise the community members to build their capacity about their own roles, measures concerning the monitoring of these projects which the government has put in place.
“We are trying to create awareness about that because the mass literacy programme of the federal government presupposes that all children must be in school. The next step for us is to create a monitoring group and encourage step down training, and appoint ambassadors amongst the community who will help to further propagate the message.”
