The FCT All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) led by its President, Malam Abdulkarim Abdulrahman has reiterated the commitment of the Association towards quality educational service delivery at all levels in the Federal Capital Territory Administration .

The President stated this at the just concluded Mandatory Continuing Professional Training (MCPT) for the North Central Zone held at Niger State. Malam Abdulrahman said the Federal Capital Territory Administration had always put education at the front burner of its plans while the schools had also complemented the efforts through professional development of the principals and teachers as well as non-teaching staff to further enhance their competence and impact positively to the teaching and learning process.

He said the five-day Mandatory Continuing Professional Training (MCPT) was imperative and part of the Association's efforts to update members with the necessary skills and latest innovation needed to continue to improve the education sector. Abdulrahman acknowledged the various challenges hampering the speedy progress of the education sector describing it as an herculean task and responsibility for all stakeholders in the sector to take up with all seriousness and together find lasting solutions in order to make the education sector an enviable one for our children to enjoy.

According to him, the Association in the FCT Chapter was working assiduously with relevant stakeholders to maintain the expected standard of Education adding that, the students' academic performance and good conduct was the priority the principals were concerned with. The President therefore commended the FCT Administration for its unrelenting effort to provide the most conducive working and learning environment for both students and teachers assuring of the Association's cooperation and support to the Administration in the upliftment of the education sector.

He called on his colleagues to utilise the knowledge gained from the mandatory training in their various schools for the benefit of teachers and students. The highlight of the training was the presentation of a communique which made the following observations on the poor reading culture of students generally in Nigeria; inadequate basic infrastructure in the educational system; inadequate trained personnel and ICT facilities' all hindering effective teaching and learning.

In its final recommendations, the North Central ANCOPSS said, "Government and other Stakeholders are to provide suitable e-learning materials and facilities to enhance academic performance, ensure intervention by well - meaning members of the society in the provision of infrastructural facilities; improve the welfare of teachers as a matter of urgency and to realize the need for government, parents and school administrators to continue to monitor students in the appropriate usage of ICT among others.

The North Central ANCOPPS further commended the Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello for his support towards the education sector and the elevation of Principals to Grade level 17 as well as appointment to position of Permanent Secretary in his state.
