Better Education Service Delivery for All (BESDA) in Nigeria will reduce the number of out-of-school children and literacy among school age children in Nigeria.

This formed the fulcrum of submission by the BESDA Deputy Executive Secretary (Services), Dr. Isiaka Olayinka Kolawale, at the ongoing workshop on Financing Agreement and its Implementation Manual signed with SUBEBs for legal officers of the Universal Basic Education Commission in Lagos.

He said BESDA programme will significantly promote system strengthening among states of the federation and therefore the target out-of-school children are taken off the street and placed under a proper school system.

The Deputy Executive Secretary stressed that the BESDA programme, which is supported by World Bank, is targeted at out-of-school children to increase equitable access, improve literacy and strengthen accountability for results in basic education delivery in Nigeria.

Participants were advised to note that for BESDA programme to succeed, two forms of legal documents have been signed by the World Bank and the Federal Government on one part, and by UBEC and 17 beneficiary state on the other part.

“Therefore, it is my suggestion that you commit yourselves to understanding the documents and benefits that will accrue from this workshop,” he said.

The one week programme will feature paper presentation by World Bank representative, BESDA Resource person, meeting wish all the legal officers among others.
