The Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu says President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration was committed to sustaining funding for basic education in the country.
The minister said the funding would be channeled through the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) to support states in the discharge of their basic education obligations.
Adamu said this while delivering his speech yesterday in Benin at the “2018 Alaghodaro Edo Summit’’, an event to mark the second year anniversary of Gov. Godwin Obaseki in office.
Adamu, represented by UBEC Secretary, Mr Hameed Boboye said the Federal Government had been providing huge amount of money to develop the basic education sub-sector in all the states.
He commended the Edo government’s stride in basic education in the past two years, which placed it among states with lowest number of out-of-school children in the country.
