The newly appointed Chairman of FCT Universal Basic Education Board (FCT UBEB), Prof. Abdullahi Mohammed has vowed to ensure transparency in all its activities.
He made the vow during his maiden meeting with the management of the board on Friday.
A statement by the spokesperson of the board, Mrs Patience Ossai, quoted Mohamed as saying that it would be difficult to achieve its objectives without transparency and accountability.
Mohammed said he would effectively engage all the stakeholders including CSOs and the media in his quest to ensure that basic education thrived in the FCT.
Also, he promised to develop performance bench mark anchored on global best practice and always put the welfare of the workers in the front burner.
Mohammed solicited the cooperation of management and members of the staff of the board in his quest to guide it to effectively deliver on its mandates.
He commended his predecessor, Dr Alhassan Sule, now Board Secretary, for keeping the system running pending the coming of the new board.
Sule assured the Executive Chairman of the maximum support of the board’s staffers and management to ensure that every child in FCT gets access to basic education.
