Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has commended the government of Kwara for the exemplary use of funds obtained so far from the School Infrastructure Commission.

Speaking to journalists shortly after inspecting some of the newly built SUBEB schools and UBEC Model Smart School in Ilorin over the weekend, UBEC’s Deputy Executive Secretary (Services), Dr. Isiaka Kolawole: “We see value for money here”.

“The money is well spent. The results are great. This is what we will actually encourage other states to do. Kwara state is doing very well. I’ve seen things myself and I can commend the chairman and his team,” he said.

dr. Kolawole, who urged other states of the country to pursue Kwara’s latest investments in the education sector, said the committee has had unpleasant experiences with the state in the past about using matching scholarships intended for primary education development. .

However, the commission added that the situation changed with the arrival of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

Asked to comment on what the state had missed in the past, Kolawole said, “We know what we’ve been through in managing some states, but Kwara State (today) is not one of those states that gives us a headache, except what we had experienced in the hands of the Kwara state back in the years.Under this dispensation, the state was great.

Kwara had missed a lot. The average Kwara child is also severely disadvantaged. Now the students have the chance to get a good standard education.

“There’s no way you’re not going to have some states that are lagging behind in a lot of areas, while some are leading the way and setting the pace. We also have a lot of states that are doing well, but some states have definitely outperformed both in terms of of the use of funds as well as in terms of access to the funds.”

The chairman, Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Professor Raheem Adaramaja, also said the board is delighted with UBEC’s positive praise, adding that it would urge it to do more for the state.

“No honorable mention comes to us without hard work. We give credit to Almighty God and we also thank our governor for his leadership. He has given us every opportunity to be victorious and we are working towards that. We are happy about that. We are going to improve what we do,” he said.
