Awka, Sept. 25, 2020 (MOI) Anambra State Commissioner for Basic Education, Prof Kate Omenugha, has urged Quality Assurance Officers in the state to be diligent and committed to their duties.
``You must ensure that things are done in the proper way, and you should not cut corners,’’ Prof. Omenugha said this when she unveiled a Toyota Hilux Project van, 17 motorcycles for school’s monitoring.
The facilities for the monitoring also included some office equipment at Anambra State Universal Basic Education Board (ASUBEB), Awka.
Omenugha enjoined the officers to ensure they used the items for the purpose for which they were meant for and not to convert them to personal property.
She said that Anambra was the first state in the country to adopt the novel methodology of ``On-The-Air-Teaching Programme’’ during the lockdown occasioned by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The commissioner noted that the synergy between the state government and the Ministry was responsible for the laudable achievements recorded by the state in the education sector.
In his opening remarks, ASUBEB Chairman, Mr Patrick Ugbaja, thanked the state government for paying the counterpart funding to ASUBEB, which made it possible for them to procure the items.
Director Quality Assurance Department of ASUBEB, Mrs Ogochukwu Obi said: ``this initiative is aimed at improving the quality of education in Nigeria.
``We know that the development of any nation is linked to quality of education provided for its citizenry.’’
Mrs Obi said that the motorcycles would aid the Quality Assurance Evaluators in the Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) in carrying out their duties.
One of the beneficiaries and a Quality Assurance Officer from Anaocha LGEA, Mrs Emelda Ikejiofor said that the motorcycles would enable them to have access schools in rural areas for easy monitoring.
Another beneficiary, Mrs Ifeyinwa Offordum, Education Secretary, Orumba North Local Government Area, thanked the government and the commissioner for supporting the education sector in Anambra. (MOI)
