The Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, Dr Hamid Bobboyi, has raised concern over the poor outcomes from the education sector despite the billions of naira spent on basic education in Nigeria.

Bobboyi said the billions being channelled into the basic education sector has not adequately correlated with learning outcomes.

The UBEC boss said the 2021/2022 National Assessment on Learning Achievements in Basic Education (NALABE ) will also evaluate the impact of the multi-billion naira annual interventions at the basic education level.

He spoke at a Two-Day International Workshop on Large Scale Assessment for Basic Education organised by UBEC in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) on Wednesday in Abuja.

While saying that each state receives an average of N1.5 billion for funding of basic education from UBEC every year, which adds up to N3 billion with payment of matching grant, Bobboyi lamented that the amount has not adequately rubbed off on learning achievements in schools
