jos — principals of public schools in Nigeria, under the aegis of the All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools, ANCOPSS, have lamented the increasing slow pace of work going on in public schools across the country which they blamed on the introduction of the Treasury Single Account, TSA.
The Head teachers equally observed that the inability of the government at all levels to adopt and implement the 26% annual budgetary provision for education as recommended by the United Nation Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO, is an impediment to the realization of educational goals in the country.
They urged government to, as a matter of urgency, improve on its funding roles by implementing the 26% recommended by UNESCO to enable the education sector perform credibly well and compete favourably with its contemporaries in other nations.
In a communiqué issued at the end of its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting held at the Nana Country Home, Jos, Plateau State, and signed by Dr. Fatima Abdulrahman and Livinus Odiong, the body’s National President and National PRO respectively, the Principals also called on government to put in place remedial measures in form of career counselling and family care personnel in schools.
