FCT DME created to close education gap –Director

Apr, 2021 | By Our Reporter | ||

The Director, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Department of Mass Education (DME), Hajara Titilayo Alayande has said that the primary aim of bringing DME into existence is to close the gap between the literates and illiterates, skilled and unskilled through provision of non-formal education, adult education and vocational education to residents.

Alayande said that DME is structured to take care of every aspect of education, technically and vocationally with serious attention also placed on basic education, adding that DME is created to ensure that illiteracy and poverty are drastically reduced in FCT. The Director, who disclosed this during an extensive mobilization and sensitization campaign to DME Zonal offices in all the Area Councils of FCT, urged FCT residents to tap into opportunities readily available at all the DME learning centres spread across all the nooks and crannies of FCT.

In her words,"FCT DME, as we all know, is a department created to close the gap. It is a department created to create opportunities for everyone and that is why our slogan is 'It is never too late to learn'. "The department is so created to ensure that the nagging problem of poverty is drastically reduced. It is structured to make sure that there is no room for illiteracy in the FCT.

"So, DME is a holistic educational department that is well-structured by FCTA under the leadership of Malam Musa Bello who is so committed to the education of FCT residents. "Skills acquisition is germane to sustainable economy. Parents, it is never too early to engage your children in sustainable skill acquisition and it is never too late for people who did not get it right at the right time, to get it right at any age. We have learners who are well over 60 years old coming to our centres to learn basic education and vocational education."
