Kogi State House of Assembly has commenced public hearing on the bill to establish Kogi State Senior Secondary Education Board, (KASSEB).

The Executive Secretary, National Senior Secondary Education Commission, (NSSEC) Dr Iyela Ajayi, who was present at the public hearing to present a submission elaborating on the NSSEC Act 2023, commended the Kogi State government and the House of Assembly for their high level of seriousness on the KSSSEB Bill.

Dr Ajayi in a statement signed by the Head Press and Protocol, Fatima Ahmed Bappare, noted that the commencement of this democratic process is a clear demonstration of the state’s determination to domesticate the Senior Secondary Education Act, 2023, which would regulate and provide the needed interventions for secondary education in the state.

He however made 14 observations and recommendations on the proposed bill, passage of which he said, would lead to the overall development of senior secondary schools in Kogi State.

Reacting, the Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, Alhaji Aliyu Umar Yusuf, said the observations and recommendations of the executive secretary had been noted by the lawmakers, and the assembly would do the needful to guard against conflict that may arise between the state Ministry of Education, Science and Technical Education Board, Teaching Service Commission and the proposed KSSSEB when the bill is finally passed into law.

In his remarks, the former Commissioner for Education in Kogi State, Mr. Wemi Jones, noted that domestication of the NSSEC Act 2023 is a welcome development that will further develop the senior secondary school sub-sector in Kogi State.
