Obaseki tasks Edo SUBEB on service delivery, accountability

Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki , has tasked new staff of Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) on effi cient service delivery and accountability .
Obaseki, who gave the charge at the closing ceremony of a two-day Orientation/ Retreat for the new staff of the board, explained that strong institutions were needed to sustain the administration’s educational policies.
“We want to build a very strong and dynamic SUBEB that is focused and free from unnecessary external infl uence.
We want the board to be self-sustaining, that was why we moved everyone out of SUBEB and recruited new crop of workers,” he said.
Th e governor regretted that SUBEB across the country has been turned into a political tool, to the detriment of the educational well-being of the Nigerian child.
He said: “Now is the time for us to train our children to fi t into the current technology-driven world, so that they can contribute their quota to global advancement.
” He warned that his administration has zero tolerance for corruption, and declared that any fraudulent or redundant person would be dismissed.
“We have given you the right orientation, so you have to align with the mandate of the board; we will equip you with the appropriate technology to boost your productivity.
“Anybody we fi nd lagging behind will be dropped because our goal is to have a renewed basic education system,” he stressed.
Th e governor mandated the agency to come up with a work plan within 30 days, so that it could source funds, and disclosed that the state government had made money available for it to do its work.
He commended the outgoing board committee members for their eff orts at strengthening the agency.
Obaseki further said that Dr.  Joan Osa Oviawe, the Special Adviser on Basic Education, would serve as the sole administrator of the board pending when a new board would be constituted.
Mrs Caroline Aikoriogie, an administrative staff , who spoke on behalf of the staff , thanked the governor for deeming it necessary to reposition the board and assured him of their support
