The State‘s Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Hon. Wemi Jones, FCIB, gave the assurance at the flag-off of a week-long workshop for the drafting of the documents for the State Education Sector Plan (SESP) and State Education Strategic Operational Plan (SESOP).
It would be recalled that His Excellency, Gov. Yahaya Bello, had earlier directed the state education ministry to develop a new education sector plan as part of holistic measures adopted by the state to address the challenges facing the sector.
The Commissioner noted that the SESP and SESOP documents would guide the state investment in education by an evidence based plan that would esure implementation of strategies that were realistic, effective and yielded the desired changes.
He further commended the governor for being so committed to education development in Kogi, while appealing to the participants to produce the required standard SESP and SESOP documents that would be presentable and acceptable to all.
”When you have a good sector plan that is shared with and developed by the people, and not for the people, then the tendency is that you will be able to access assistance from different develop partners”, he said.
The technical committee were drawn from the state‘s MDAs such as STETSCOM, SUBEB, AANFE, Ministries of Justice; Finance, Budget and Economic Planning, the education ministry’s Permanent Secretary & Directors, and representatives from all tertiary institutions in the state.
