Benue SUBEB vows to address challenges in primary education

The Benue State Uni­versal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Chair­man, Rev. Dr Philip Tachin, has assured that the Samuel Ortom administration was determined to tackle all chal­lenges in the primary educa­tion sector.
He gave the assurance while inspecting some ongoing pri­mary school projects in Oju, Obi and Otukpo local govern­ment areas with a team which included the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and ICT, Mr Tahav Agerzua.
The team inspected Lo­cal Government Education Authority (LGEA) Primary Schools, Ogenge, Ainu and Okpong in Oju; Adiko-Ogen­de Ito, Adum East and Ogwu­tungbe in Obi; as well as Asa two, Amla Icho and Otukpo Nobi in Otukpo.
He stated that the interven­tion by way of facelift of pri­mary schools through reno­vation and construction of classrooms was a practical expression of the determina­tion to tackle the challenges so as to create a conducive en­vironment for primary edu­cation.
The chairman appealed to teachers not to relent in their efforts of bringing up the young ones and prom­ised that the state government was exploring ways of raising money to clear salary arrears owed them.
He directed the immedi­ate supply of furniture to one of the schools and expressed satisfaction with the quality of work of most of the con­tractors and instructed that things not done properly should be amended.
Although some of the con­tractors complained about the hike in the cost of build­ing materials, the chairman assured them that it would be looked into but warned against the use of inferior materials adding that they should work with specifica­tions given to them.
