Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King, the Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, has said a four-day retreat being held for permanent members of the board and top educational officials aims at repositioning the organisation for better service delivery.
Alawiye-King told the gazellenews the event was part of fulfilling his vision for the state education management board.
“Our idea, since taking office, is to give each permanent member of the SUBEB a task; an area of competence. This, I believe will ensure proper delegation of duties and enable each member contribute effectively especially as it regards building competence and accountability,” he said.
The event, holding at the Glover Hotel, Ikeja, kicked off on Monday.
Alawiye-King, a United States graduate, former university teacher, and former state lawmaker, was appointed SUBEB chairman in September. He has a degree from the City University of New York, two Master’s degrees, and certified investigator by the New York City Police Academy.
The education management board is a special intervention vehicle designed to tackle challenges in schools, especially bordering on learning, infrastructure and staffing.
