N51bn UBEC funds: Why Governors must release funds for Nigerian children in school

Published Feb 24, 2022

Recently, the  Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), in a statement called out Governors of the 36 States of the federation to comply with the processes required to access the N51 billion counterpart funds earmarked by the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) for basic education in the country.

 

It will be recalled that the federal government has approved this proposition for the counterpart fund since July 2019, and almost three years on, the State governments have consistently displayed its negligence and lackadaisical attitude towards education yet again. This means that Nigerian children from elementary and high school levels will not have access to adequate academic facilities as they will continue to suffer in penury.

 

Role of Citizens

Hence, citizens have a role to play in ensuring they exercise their civic and democratic rights in calling their governors with whom they elected into office to order and demand that they do the needful so that millions of Nigerian children will not be deprived of their fundamental academic benefits.

 

Call to Action

On this note, we urge every concerned citizen to ensure every Nigerian child gets quality basic education by Tweeting at the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors' Forum, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
