FCT: No child will be denied access to education, UBEB boss assures

The chairman of the FCT Universal Basic Education, Dr Hussan Sule, has assured that no child living in the territory will be denied access to education no matter where they live or come from.

Dr Sule, who was fielding questions on the ongoing teachers’ strike in Bwari, Kwali and Kuje area councils, said the FCT Administration (FCTA) had been working hard to ensure no pupil of school age was denied access to education in the territory.

He said, “The FCTA is doing everything possible to ensure that every child of school age resident in the FCT gets access to free and compulsory basic education in conformity with the UBE ACT 2004.’’

To achieve this, Dr Sule said the board had been carrying out periodic mobilisation and sensitisation campaigns in most of the communities to improve child participation in basic education to reduce to a minimal level the out-of-school-children syndrome in the FCT.

Dr Sule noted that the move had improved enrolment figure in the territory, forcing the administration to establish more primary and junior secondary schools to meet up with the basic education needs.

He further said, “The board also ensures equity by promoting inclusive education for all categories of learners and ensuring quality by improving school facilities such as additional classrooms, training of teachers and supplies of various instructional materials, including staff motivation, for better basic education delivery in the FCT.’’
