Kwara State Governor, Abudulfatah Ahmed solicits more private sector involvement in providing primary education

Kwara: Ahmed Directs Release Of 1st, 2nd Quarter Allocations

By Teddy Nwanunobi

Abuja (Sundiata Post) –  Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has directed the immediate release of first and second quarter allocations to tertiary institutions in the State.

Ahmed, who gave the directive, also charged that any institution’s head that fails to meet the revenue targets, resulting in salary arrears, will be changed.

He gave the directive during a meeting with heads of government-owned tertiary institutions in the State, explained that the revenue projections for the schools have been included in the 2017 budget proposal, and formed the basis of agreed subventions.

The Governor, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant to the Governor (Media and Communication), Muideen Akorede, noted that the heads of schools in the State must intensify efforts to market their institutions, increase student numbers and enhance their internally generated revenues (IGR) to meet recurrent expenditure.

This, according to the governor, will ensure that they meet their projected revenues, with an assurance that the State government will continue to meet its obligations to the institutions in terms of provisions of subventions and infrastructures.

Ahmed, however, expressed confidence that the management of the institutions will meet their targets and pledged the State government’s continued support, saying that the Institutions will soon be restructured and made self-sustaining in view of current economic realities and global trends.

The Governor disclosed that the state government will soon set up a committee to assess the infrastructural needs of the institutions, which will be funded under the Kwara State Infrastructure Development Fund (IFK).
