The 2022 National Personnel Audit report conducted on basic schools in the country will soon be released to the public, the Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, Dr Hamid Bobboyi, has said.
Bobboyi disclosed this at the one-day colloquium, organised by the Commission in Abuja, themed “The Nigerian Child: Dynamics of Educational Opportunities.”
“UBEC has always been involved in this kind of project because we have always believed that you need to engage, discuss and strategise and get involved in research projects that can help you understand better those challenges and how best to address them.
“So it is a continuous process. We have always been engaging in this kind of colloquium, we have an outstanding research team, and as you know, we are also processing the results of the 2022 National Personnel Audit for school census as well as the assessment of learning in education, which is one of the largest in Africa that will give us an idea of whether our children are learning or not and areas which we are having difficulties.
“We have to do it in the interest of the basic education sector and its development in Nigeria.
“The results of the National Personnel Audit are almost ready. We hope to launch both the National Assessment of Learning and the personnel audit in July or thereabout,” he added.
The UBEC boss, however, stressed the need for the National Population Commission to conduct a census which will help the UBEC in carrying out its functions.
