Professor Kaniye Ebeku, the Rivers State Commissioner for Education, has stated that the Wike administration is committed to the improvement of education in the state.
Professor Ebeku reaffirmed this position on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, when he toured some of the state’s Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) centers.
While interacting with students at the centers visited, Professor Ebeku stated that Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration is committed to tackling the issue of out-of-school children in the state by providing free education and implementing the BESDA program.
“The government knows that the future lies with you. The young shall grow and if we do not make effort to ensure that you learn something, then we do not have a future as a people,” he said.
The Education Commissioner also praised the facilitators at the Centers for their professional teaching duties, saying that the teacher-pupil relationship he observed during his tour impressed him.
Speaking to the children he said:
“I am happy to come here to see you all today. I have participated in the your literacy class and I can see you are doing well. I can see you are eager and hungry for knowledge.”
The Executive Chairman of the Rivers State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Fynface Akah, and several Board personnel led Professor Ebeku to the BESDA Centres.
The Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) program aims to improve out-of-school children’s access to education, improve literacy in priority states, and establish accountability for basic education results in Nigeria.
