Ijembi made this known at the end of a national workshop on Monitoring and Evaluation of Public Health Programmes, which took place at the ABU’s NAERLC conference hall. He said the university is trying to achieve that through collaboration with a partner.
“Right now, we really don’t have programmes on monitoring and evaluation. Measure Evaluation is the only organisation that has been involved in supporting capacity building in monitoring and evaluation in the area of health in Nigeria for some years. In the past two years, they have partnered with the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) and the Obafemi Awolowo University so that we can take over and start training people to see how, we can introduce it in our regular full-time training programmes. This is the second national workshop and we have people from all over the country. We have broad representation in this conference, which is encouraging our plans,” Ijembi explained.
