He noted that education has been given priority attention in his transformation agenda and vowed to resist any attempt by those entrusted to oversee the sector sabotage government’s effort towards the realization of the goal.

With the development, the Governor promised to re-organize the board to ensure efficiency and result oriented system.

Captain Wada stated this on Wednesday when members of the Bureau for Local Government Pension paid him a courtesy call at the Government House Lokoja.

He described the alleged high level of non-performance by the present management of the State UBEC as very embarrassing.

He claimed that education had been given priority attention in his transformation agenda.

He vowed to resist any attempt by those entrusted to oversee the sector to allegedly sabotage government’s effort towards the realisation of its goal.

Wada said, “I am disappointed with the non-performance of the Chairman and members of SUBEB and very soon I will restructure the board to give room for improved services in handling the affairs of primary school teachers in the state.”

He commended members of the Bureau for Local Government Pension for working out effective modalities that had facilitated regular payment of pensioners in the state and the gradual settlement of their gratuity.

He also directed the Pension Board to take accurate statistics of the Local Government Pensioners in the state to avoid payment to ghosts pensioners.

Earlier, the Executive Secretary of the Bureau for Local Government Pension, Mr. Joseph Ogundare, lauded Wada for addressing the plight of pensioners, especially the regular payment of their pension.

He promised that the Board will not compromise transparency in the systems.
