In a bid to ensure stability and excellent performance in LEA Primary Schools within Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), the Executive Chairman of AMAC, Hon. Christopher Zakka Maikalangu, has inaugurated a 6-man steering committee to assess the programmes, progress, prospects and challenges of LEA Primary Schools in AMAC.
According to a statement on Tuesday, signed by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Kingsley Madaki, speaking at the inauguration on Tuesday, Hon. Maikalangu urged members of the committee to do everything within their powers to come up with viable options to bring LEA Primary Schools to enviable level.
He told the committee to visit all the primary schools in the Council with a view to review and evaluate their educational performance and ascertain the healthy situation of their facilities.
Maikalangu charged the committee members to ensure that each primary school in the council provide her pupils with a standard curriculum that is generally accepted and oversee the financial performance of the schools and make sure they are optimally used to address issues in the school.
Meanwhile, the Chairman encouraged them to investigate all illegal primary schools and checkmate the sharp practices of the staff of LEA Primary Schools.
He said they should fish out ghost workers and those that are receiving salary after retirement. The chairman gave the committee 30 days to conclude and advise the council on the instructional materials needed in the LEA Primary Schools.
In his response, the Committee Chairman, Henry Gambo Sakoma, pledged to carry out their duties diligently without fear or favour.
He assured the chairman that they will deliver the assignment given to them within the time frame.
