Advocacy Visits to Stakeholders in Education Sector in Adamawa State.

Meeting with the Adamawa State Commissioner for Education, Chief Wilbina Jackson. The commissioner and her team commended the achievements of the project so far, which included; *Enrollment of 910 girls back to school *Creation of 16 safe spaces *Training of 275 education stakeholders *Provision of scholastic materials (bags, books, pen, and pencils) to 952 pupils. She disclosed that as part of the provisions of the UBE Act 2004, the state government has made universal basic education free and compulsory for all children. And that the government has also taken over payments of WAEC & NECO registration fees for all students in government secondary schools (WAEC & NECO registration fees were paid for 46,420 candidates in 2021 alone). The commissioner further revealed that all PTA levies are subject to her approval and that she has not approved any levy above N300 per pupil.Most of the levies are usually for sports and extracurricular activities. It is an offence to drive any child away from school because of PTA levy. She enjoined the Centre to relate directly with her ministry and the PTA because most of the school principals are dubious and shouldn’t be trusted. She further stated that the state government is in the process of recruiting more teachers for primary and secondary schools. Public schools are also being rehabilitated. The toilet facilities in public schools will be given attention to ensure that female pupils don’t miss classes during the flow of their mentrual cycles.
