The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has disclosed plans to collate the number of students in public primary schools under the Better Education Service for All (BESDA).

In a statement yesterday, NBS spokesperson, Ichedi Sunday Joel, said the Bureau would be visiting selected schools across the nation to verify the authenticity of records kept by implementing schools at the state level and also provide data for the assessment of four  disbursement linked indicators on which states would be rewarded.

“This particular exercise, which is the 2nd phase,  will be conducted in 17 BESDA focus states, comprising of all the states in the North East, North West, Niger State in the North Central, Oyo State in the South West, Ebonyi state in the South East and Rivers in the South – South.”
