Minister of Education Alhaji Adamu Adamu has endorsed the World Bank with a $ 611 million grant to strengthen the education sector to strengthen basic education and tackle the challenges in the sector.

Adamu gave the commendation on Wednesday at the launch of Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) in Birinin Kebbi.

The minister, represented by Vice Chancellor of the Federal University Birnin Kebbi, Prof. Bello Sheahu, said the government was grateful to the bank for its support.

He said, "We thank the World Bank for initiating the BESDA project and providing a grand total of $ 611 to support the federal government in strengthening basic education and tackling other educational challenges."

The minister added that no nation could exceed the level of their educational development, and stressed the need for a developed, knowledge-based education system.

In his opinion, such a well-articulated system will equip and prepare people for competition in a knowledge-based economy in the 21st century.

BESDA team leader Hajiya Aisha Garba said the $ 611 million is a World Bank loan to Nigeria to support universal primary education.

She said the bank had asked the federal government to strictly use the grant to modernize facilities in UBE and tackle other sector challenges or reimbursement of risk.

"We have released this fund to support the 36 states in Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, but if they are not used and are performing well, the World Bank will collect their money.

"The money has been released to tackle the first pillar of the Ministerial Strategic Plan (MSP) 2016-2019 on extra-curricular children."

In their opinion, BESDA's main objective is to improve equitable access to out-of-school children, to improve literacy and to strengthen accountability for the results of basic education in Nigeria.

The Governor of Kebbi, Alhaji Abubakar Bagudu, represented by Deputy Governor Ismail Yombe, thanked the World Bank and the Federal Government for initiating the program and assured them of its full implementation.

He expressed the commitment of the provincial government to ensure quality education.

Yombe said the state government has agreed to set up six Tsangaya schools with more than 2,000 students to reduce the problem of schoolchildren.
