Lagos SUBEB Pledge to Support Campaign on Effective Quality Basic Education

DSCN4701Dr. Ganiyu Sopeyin, Executive Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LSUBEB) has expressed the board’s support and willingness to collaborate with Human Development Initiatives (HDI) on her  project aimed at improving access to quality education at the local government level for the development of education in the state. This assertion was made during HDI-cluster delegate advocacy visit to LSUBEB led by Prof. Sarah Oloko, Chairperson, HDI Board of Trustees. The team appealed to LSUBEB to ensure successful implementation of Universal Basic Education (UBE) policy at the grassroots level, completion of abandoned school projects in the state among others.  On the issue of un-accessed Federal Government matching grant allocation raised by the team, Dr. Sopeyin revealed that the Lagos State Government has paid the requisite counterpart fund for 2014 only that the FG has not fulfilled its part of the contract. Also in attendance at the meeting were Mrs. Abosede Adelaja, Board Secretary, LSUBEB and representatives of Parent Forum from Lagos Mainland.
