EKOEXCEL: We Will Partner Lagos Assembly To Get Legislative Backing.

The Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB), Hon Wahab Alawiye-King has stated that the Board will work out measures to put in place necessary legislative backing to sustain the EKOEXCEL programme after the present administration.
Alawiye-King stated this on Saturday, 25 January, 2020, in Lagos during the formal launch and graduation ceremony of EKOEXCEL Teachers Professional Development and Training Programme.
The LASUBEB boss, a former lawmaker himself, said such legislative backing will give the programme sustainability which will enhance development of education, particularly the primary section, in the state.


“It is no longer news that a major vision of this administration from the onset has been geared towards radically increasing access to Basic and Functional Education in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 4, the National Policy on Education, UBEC Act 2004 and SUBEB Law 2006, of achieving an all-
inclusive, Quality Universal Basic Education. “This is equally encapsulated in the 3rd pillar of the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu’s of providing Education and Technology,” he said, noting that such laudable programme anchored on growth of education needs legislative backup to achieve its aims.
Alawiye-King commended the state Governor for investing heavily in the programme which he said, was aimed at repositioning basic education in the state and bring it to greater heights. “Mr Governor, we commend and appreciate you sincerely for every child’s future you are building today,” he said.


He also commended the teachers and staff for their dedication, determination and enthusiasm towards the success of the programme. “It has been weeks of rigorous training and re-training of teachers and school administrators on the process of deploying this innovative technology in the classroom, to aid effective teaching and learning for the
overall improvement of basic education in the state.
“I enjoin all graduants to effectively deploy what has been learnt at the training
programme in other to make the classroom more engaging for our teachers and pupils.


“No child should be left behind; you must carry all your pupils along, irrespective of their individual differences and capabilities,” he said.
The LASUBEB boss also advised parents to monitor the activities of their children and also perform oversight functions on them.
“The home is the first learning ground for pupils hence our parents should monitor their wards: ensure prompt and regular attendance in schools, ensure that they appear in school clean and also ensure that they monitor their homework as well as be supportive of school activities,” he said.
