At the 60th Anniversary of Grange School, Lagos on Tuesday, the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, had announced that the government’s new education policy would be named ‘Every Child Counts. However, Saraki’s aide said the education policy “ was the same name given to a series of public school education reforms in Kwara State, Nigeria ten years ago under the Saraki administration.”

It said “The Kwara State ‘Every Child Counts’ model, which has now been repackaged by the Buhari-Osinbajo administration for the federal level, sought to provide quality education in public schools in the state by ensuring an improvement in teaching quality; setting and maintaining quality assurance standards for each school; improving the capacity of Colleges of Education to produce quality teachers; and building strong educational institutions in the state through the development of the Ministry of Education, the Teaching Service Commission and strengthening the State Education Management Information System (EMIS).”

It added that “following the success of the program, Osinbajo’s announcement that the Federal Government’s new educational policy would also be named ‘Every Child Counts’, has once again shed light on the fact that the Buhari-led federal government continues to acknowledge the impact of Saraki’s work as the Executive Governor of Kwara State.”
