FCT DME restates commitment to development of nomadic education - Director

Sep, 2021 | By Farayola Ojebola | ||

If there is one thing the Director, Federal Capital Territory Department of Mass Education, Hajara Titilayo Alayande is passionate about, it is eradicating illiteracy and reducing joblessness to the barest minimum in the FCT. This is why she has made a renewed call for boosting the non formal education and empowering youths with profitable skills acquisition programmes which will positively impact on every concerned resident of the FCT without leaving out the Fulani settlers.

The Director who made this call during an interactive meeting with the representatives of Fulani settlers in the FCT promised that her Department will stop at nothing to ensure that their people benefit immensely from the Minister of FCT Mallam Muhammed Musa Bello's gesture to improve the life of every resident of the territory irrespective of their race, ethnicity and religion.

Hajara Titilayo who noted that nomadic education deserves equal attention as basic education stressed the determination of FCT Administration to boost nomadic education in the FCT by employing more facilitators, opening more learning centres and training them on profitable skills for self sustenance and development.

She urged the participants to sensitize and encourage their wives, children and youths to embrace these opportunities given to them by FCT administration. “Like I said Mass Education is charged with the responsibility of providing literacy education and non formal education in terms of skills development for everybody whether you are young or old and this is our mandate and for this reason we want to make sure that we are impacting on the grass root”.

News Update

Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed, disclosed these while speaking during the FMFBNP/AfDB SAPZ High-Level virtual discussions last week.

With the support of her principals, Dame Joy Okoro has gradually been solving the many issues that plagued FCT Water Board with the immediate noticeable result being that revenue has shot up apparently for the first time in a while.

In a recent interview with Abuja Digest Weekly's Sennen Udoh, Mr. Ekpenyong, was a journalist's delight to behold as he volunteered consultancy counseling on effective mentoring on education, moral upbringing, and sports/other talents.

The involvement of women in sports in Nigeria in some quarters, particularly in northern Nigeria, is something that is viewed as rather unacceptable but a different ball game in other parts of the country.
