FCT Minister engages 50 more facilitators for nomadic education

Mar, 2022 | By Farayola Ojebola | ||

Moving to strike out illiteracy and ensure equal access to basic education in the Territory, Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, has engaged 50 more facilitators for nomadic education across the six Area Councils of FCT. Speaking during the induction training for the newly-engaged facilitators recently, Director, FCT Department of Mass Education (DME), Mrs. Titilayo Alayande, who disclosed this, charged the beneficiaries to optimally contribute their quota towards the eradication of illiteracy in FCT and also see their engagement as a call to serve people in their immediate communities.

Hajia Alayande thanked the Minister for approving the engagement of the 50 additional part-time facilitators, promising to take basic and literacy education to the remotest corners of FCT. The Director added that FCTA under the leadership of Malam Muhammad Musa Bello is committed to the implementation of government's mass literacy and non-formal education policy to actualize education for all and eradication of illiteracy for poverty reduction.

Hajia Alayande said: “I want to categorically tell you that the Honuorable Minister's passion for education of all and sundry in the FCT is second to none. This is why he has magnanimously added more hands to the recently-engaged 500 part time facilitators. “Considering the peculiarity of nomadic education and the hard-to-reach 'ruga' communities, not leaving behind the need to give every resident of the FCT equal access to basic education, we will ensure that these new facilitators are basically channeled to nomadic classes.

“The youth engagement as part-time facilitators is one of the strategies adopted by the FCT Administration to promote inclusiveness as well as capacity building of the facilitators for further job opportunities. I urge you to give your learners quality education, encourage them, go and create more awareness, cooperate with your learners and ensure that you give them the best.

“The FCT Administration has pledged inclusive development; it wants everybody to be carried along. This is why the government is responding to the yearnings of the people in the rural communities without the exception of our people in the 'ruga' communities.”
