Niger State government says it has earmarked about N404 million for the training of about 8,893 education managers and teachers across the state.

The executive chairman, Niger State Universal Basic Education Board(SUBEB), Dr Isah Adamu, stated this over the weekend in his remarks at the commencement of training for education managers at the Justice Legbo Kutigi International Conference Centre, Minna.

Adamu noted that the training was a master training programme that would be cascaded down to other schools to accommodate more teachers.

The SUBEB boss disclosed that the state had a problem with teachers mastering their subject specialisations, adding that “we are already looking forward to a sustainable continuous teacher development programme that will address the challenge.”

According to Adamu, the participants will be equipped with skills and resources that will enable them to teach effectively as well as undertake other necessary trainings that are required.

He added that the training was being sponsored under the 2017/2018 UBEC PTD intervention fund in collaboration with the Niger State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

He said: “We hope that at the end of the day, about 533,580 pupils from the state’s public primary schools will benefit from the training programmes through the influence of the trained teachers, and we hope to scale up the number in the next programme, depending on the resources at our disposal.”

He noted that the aim of the collaboration was to educate the children and ensure that all teachers and education managers are adequately equipped to meet up with the current trends in the teaching profession. It is also meant to complement the effort of the state governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, in ensuring that every school age child in the state receives quality education.

Adamu also informed the gathering about the efforts of Governor Bello in the state’s education sector.

He stated that no governor in the history of the state had matched up with the counterpart funds of Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) like the incumbent governor.

“When the All Progressives Congress-led administration of Governor Bello,first came into office in 2015, he paid the backlogs of 2013, 2014 and 2015 matching grants,” he said.

He added that the state government had also cleared the counterpart fund of 2016, 2017 and 2018, with the 2019 and 2020 at advanced stages.

Adamu, noted that the kind gesture of the governor had translated into  the construction of 1,313 classrooms and renovation of 1,010 classrooms making a refurbishment of 22 public primary schools in the state.

Others, according to him are 960 VIP toilets, 20 blocks of buildings with 200 classrooms, perimeter fencing of 15 schools, drillings of 70 boreholes and a total of 122, 204 pupils and teachers’ furniture, constructed and distributed to schools across the 25 local government areas of the state.

He thereby applauded the bold initiatives of the state Governor Bello for bringing back the lost glory of the state in the areas of teacher development and training by introducing the Teachers Professionals Development Institute across the state.
