UBEC, NAPPS trade blame over personnel audit process
The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has accused private school owners of frustrating the ongoing personnel audit of basic schools across the country.Chairman of the commission, Mahmoud Abubakar and the Executive Secretary, Hamid Bobboyi, who raised the alarm while auditing some schools in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja said the refusal of some private schools to allow government take census of their staff and pupils is a major setback in data collection efforts.
The duo said the essence of the exercise billed to end on Saturday, June 30 is to appreciate the role of the private sector in closing the gap concerning the inadequacy of accessible and conducive public schools as well as see areas where knowledge can be shared.The executive secretary clarified that the exercise is not meant for increased or additional tax payment by the private schools as being circulated in some quarters.
But the school owners debunked the claim saying they have been cooperating with the commission on relevant issues.NAPPS president, Sally Bolujoko alleged that in most cases, the government team deprived them the budgetary allocation meant for the project.
