The Oyo State Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) program under the Intensive Literacy Initiative has enrolled a number of non-formal students in formal schools across the state.

Meanwhile, the Oyo State Government has expressed its satisfaction with the development.

This was exactly as the executive chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, praised the recent development during a verification trip to all 21 Local Government Areas in the state that had adopted the initiative.

While noting that the students were evaluated before being admitted to the schools, he stated that the innovation was a kind of achievement for both the teachers and the government in the state.

“This is a big plus for us in Oyo state. It shows that BESDA works for us. While we don’t have the actual figure yet, some of the non-formal learning centers we visited in certain local governments have confirmed that some of their students have gone mainstream,” Adeniran boasted.
