The Federal Government is set to improve the condition of 2,505 schools this year under its School-Based Management Committee-School Improvement Programme (SBMC-SIP)  aimed at improving quality of education at basic level nationwide.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who flagged off the programme in Kano yesterday, said it was a home-grown initiative aimed at addressing national aspirations and meeting global expectations through the provision of qualitative education, free of charge to all children of school age.

He said implementation experiences had shown that the delivery of basic education in the country was facing daunting challenges militating against Nigerian’s drive towards meeting her developmental goals and global expectations.

Earlier, the Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Dr Hamid Bobboyi, said the vision of the commission in the SBMC-SIP was to put a strategy for school development whereby community-initiated self-help projects would be implemented by the SBMCs.

Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said the programme would give public schools a new life through provision of conducive learning atmosphere.

He urged school administrators to be steadfast and committed to the programme.
