The poor implementation of education policies by both Federal and State governments has been identified as a factor capable of frustrating Federal Government’s transformation agenda in the sector.
A communiqué issued at the second Annual National Conference of the School of Administration and Business Studies, SABS, lauded the agenda, but feared that the poor attention may truncate it.
The communiqué, signed by Chairman, Local Organizing Committee of the conference, Elder Emmanuel Eguzoikpe, called on governments at all levels to be very committed to proper implementation of agreed policies to enhance quality of education.
Participants observed that the transformation agenda of the current administration is a step in the right direction, but pointed out that poor implementation is posing a serious setback to its success.
They also urged the Federal Government to meticulously implement the agenda, taking into account issues of continuity, consistency and commitment to laid-down policies.
The communiqué also quoted participants as decrying the lack of effective linkage between the three ties of government in the formation and implementation of the Agenda and called for closer working relationship toward effective monitoring and evaluation.
The participants, however, commended the Federal Ministry of Education for directing tertiary institutions to establish centres for Entrepreneurship Education and Development, adding that the move is a viable measure that would reduce poverty in the country.
