My Opinion over leadership is different we always complain of
names not leadership, PDP it a political party which aides leaders
to rule or govern a particular geographical location it now take we
the subject to be hunger for good leaders and be ready to be lead
PDP was ok and even the 16 year people talk of that was wasted
out of it a program was established which run for 9 year UBEB it
cost billions of Naira here is an article
The Universal Basic Education (UBE) Programme is a nine (9) year
basic educational programme, which was launched and executed
by the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to
eradicate illiteracy, ignorance and poverty as well as stimulate and
accelerate national development, political consciousness and
national integration. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo flagged
off UBE on 30 th September 1999 in Sokoto , Sokoto State. The
UBE Programme is Nigeria’s strategy for the achievement of
Education for All (EFA) and the education-related Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs).
The implementation process of the programme has been on since
1999 , but progress was hampered by lack of an enabling law to
execute certain aspects of the programme. What a big relief it was
when the President signed the UBE Bill into law on 26 th May 2004
following its passage by the National Assembly . The UBE Act 2004
makes provision for basic education comprising of ECCE, Primary
and Junior Secondary Education. The financing of basic education
is the responsibility of States and Local Governments. However,
the Federal Government has decided to intervene in the provision
of basic education with 2% of its Consolidated Revenue Fund. For
states to fully benefit from this Fund, criteria were established
which states are to comply. The Act also provides for the
establishment of the Universal Basic Education Commission
(UBEC) to co-ordinate the implementation of the programme at the
states and local government through the State Universal Basic
Education Board (SUBEB) of each state and the Local Government
Education Authorities (LGEAs) . The Universal Basic Education
Commission (UBEC) was formally established on 7 th October
2004 .
