Oho State Government has expressed its readiness to deploy the World Bank-assisted Better Education Service Delivery (BESDA) takeoff grant in educating about 170, 536 out-of-school children in 23 councils of the state and ensure their retention in schools.
Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr. Nureni Adeniran, said this yesterday after a two-day interactive session in Ibadan on the implementation of the project.
Adeniran reiterated the state government’s resolve to rid the streets of all out-of-school children and put them in public schools, saying the programme would cater for even hawkers and the almajiri in the state.
