FG to review Senior Secondary Education curriculum

The Executive Secretary of the National Senior Secondary Education Commission (NSSEC), Dr Benjamin Abakpa, has said the commission is set to review the Senior Secondary Education curriculum to meet the minimum standard.

This, according to him, would be in collaboration with the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC).

Speaking at the 3-day sensitization and advocacy programme organised for education stakeholders in the North Central geopolitical zone in Benue State, Dr Abakpa said the commission had commenced the revamping of senior secondary education across the country with clear strategies, according to a statement signed by the Head of Press & Public Relations, Fatima Bappare.

He said the Commission is saddled with the responsibility among others to set minimum standards and ensure that secondary education meets the needs of the country as well as global competitiveness.

Abakpa said, to achieve the set objective, the commission is embarking on sensitization and advocacy across the country to carry all the stakeholders along.

He also noted that the Commission was making efforts in developing an accurate database of senior secondary schools across the country.

While expressing optimism that NSSEC’s strategies would help tremendously in addressing some of the challenges confronting senior secondary education, he called on all stakeholders to collaborate with NSSEC to ensure the lost glory of senior secondary education is fully restored.

Also speaking, the Deputy Governor of Benue State, Benson Abounu, applauded the federal government for resuscitating the law that established NSSEC and charged the Commission to render its services for all and not to be selective in its work.
