Within the period, it constructed 125 classrooms, four science/technical laboratories, two administrative blocks, six boreholes, one staff quarters, two sports facilities in schools under its supervision.

All these are despite the hindering ravages of the global Covid-19 pandemic, the board stated. Acting Executive Chairman of the board, Dr Alhassan Sule, who disclosed these also told newsmen that UBEB fenced six schools to ensure tighter security, built one two-bedroom accommodation, 28 Very Important Personality (VIP) toilets, undertook the landscaping of two schools and constructed two drainage systems in schools across the Territory. Furthermore, he said, the board rehabilitated 325 classrooms, five administrative blocks, two science laboratories, one library block, two multipurpose halls, concrete beds and pavements, among a litany of achievements it notched up. To improve academic quality, Dr Sule revealed, the board procured and distributed desktop and laptop computers and printers to Quality Assurance Evaluators in the six Local Education Authority (LEA) headquarters and zones of the Territory.

Also, to push up staff motivation, the Chairman said, the agency conducted the 2019 and 2020 promotion examinations for all eligible staff, with results being awaited.

Speaking on ongoing programmes, Dr Sule listed the construction of 137 classrooms, two school fences, construction of dining hall, construction of a 96-bed space hostel and many other projects. He said his tenure is anchored on a three-pronged policy thrust, including the improvement of school infrastructure; training of teachers to up their capacity to perform for the good of students and society, as well as ensuring that eligible local communities with appreciable number of school enrolment can have a school located there ''to ensure every child of school age has access to quality basic education.''
