Paucity Of Data Compels Nigeria’s Universal Basic Education Commission To Begin National Personnel Audit

The paucity of reliable data to support educational development has compelled management of the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) to embark on a comprehensive personnel audit of basic schools in Nigeria.The exercise, which has the backing of the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, and other stakeholders, is expected to overhaul the basic education system, which is believed to be in a state of rot.The last time any audit was carried out in the basic school sector was in 2006 and 2010.

“This audit can be likened to school census where we will take into account the pupils, number of teachers within the system, their level of qualifications among other things.

“It will provide reliable data for assessing the impact and achievement of the sub sector in realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“It will also feed the acquired data into the national data bank for global reporting in line with Nigeria’s Educational Management Information System (NEMIS) policy,” Bobboyi stated.
