Imperatively, SBMC is a unique template which brings communities, parents, non-parents, teachers, artisans, school children and governments under one umbrella for synergy towards addressing challenges in the basic education sector, particularly funding, infrastructure and service delivery rather than waiting solely on the government.
The remarkable results compellingly necessitated this 'expo' for other states, perhaps still reluctant to take the SBMC seriously.
For example, through the interventionist mechanism, a primary school presently owns a car-wash centre, flower-garden and other business ventures put in place by SBMC and prudently managed for revenue generation for projects in the school.
Apart from SBMC's boost on infrastructure development in the schools, various groups in the communities that make up the SBMC, including artisans, mothers, make their respective valuable contributions accordingly.
Visibly, essential projects including, boreholes, chairs, landscaping of school compound, were also impressively put in place by the SBMC scheme.
While stressing that UBEC is working towards addressing critical areas of access and quality, Kagara said there was the need to support the SBMCs which have the advantage of monitoring and supervising of the projects in schools.
Director, Social Mobilisation, UBEC, Alhaji Bello Kagara, made this known on Tuesday in Kano while making a presentation at a two-day media dialogue on School-Based Management Committee (SBMC) organization by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
He disclosed that this amount would be scaled up N5 billion next year, saying the government felt that SBMC is the closest to structure to the communities where the schools are located.
He said: 'SBMC provides the linkage between the government and the community leaders, religious leaders following their ability to reach out to these people'
CEWHIN Programme Coordinator, Mrs Banke Akinrimisi, while speaking with the Nigerian Tribune at the opening of the two -day workshop organised for members of the School-Based Management Committees (SBMC
) and Parents Teachers Associations (PTA) selected from 13 schools in Abeokuta South LGA, explained that the stakeholders have a great role to play in ensuring its success.
