The Universal Basic Education Commission(UBEC) has begun the procedure of ascertaining the exact number of teachers in both private and public schools at the basic education level across Nigeria.

During Consultative Meeting on the 2022 National Personnel Audit of all Basic Education Institutions in Abuja, Dr Hamid Bobboyi who is the Executive Secretary of the commission said the exercise, that was last conducted by the commission in 2018, is meant to consolidate on prior achievements to make certain centralized comprehensive data on basic education in the country.

He said UBEC had collaboration with the Federal Capital Territory(FCT) Universal Basic Education Board and other critical stakeholders to make the program a success.

Dr Hamid Bobboyi said “The exercise is meant to conduct personnel audit of all educational institutions in the country offering enormous essentials of fundamental education.

Another important aspect is for the purpose of collecting school data on enrolment, personnel and facilities among others, to enable effective plan.
