The Nigerian Media has been charged to support the process of bringing positive change in Service Delivery Performance for quality services in the country’s education and health sectors. 


The media  was charged during a two day outreach and engagement workshop organised by the African Economic Research Consortium, (AERC) in collaboration with the Nigerian Institute of social and Economic Research (NISER) in Abuja. 

In his speech, the acting Director-General, NISER, Professor Victor Adeyeye urged the media to promote quality service delivery in primary education and basic health services in their reportage that will draw attention of the policy makers to set benchmark on service delivery performance in Nigeria and in Africa at large. 

In her presentation on Service Delivery Indicators both on health and education, Dr. Fadeyibi Opeyemi said the survey was conducted and result gotten from the both sectors shows that a lot needs to be done to revive the lost glory mostly in the educational sector as well as health.

Meanwhile, private school owners have now reduced fees by 50 percent due to the non-payment of salaries. General Secretary, National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, NAPPS, in the local government, Mr. Salihu Ilyasu, who disclosed this yesterday in an interview, said of the 1,300 private schools in the area, only 600 were officially approved. According to him, about 15 proprietors have been denied approval for lack of adequate facilities, among other expected criteria for establishing schools. He explained further that the association had been working with the state Ministry of Education to ensure a conducive teaching and learning environment, but also to improve the standard of education in the state. He said: “The state Ministry of Education, in collaboration with our association, will begin inspection of private schools across the state this month. This is aimed at ensuring sanity in the education system. “For instance, we have 1,300 private schools in Karu Local Government, out of which only 600 were given approval, having met the standards set by the state government.” While commending the new Commissioner for Education in the state, Ilyasu blamed the rot in the education system on government, saying “on many occasions, we have cried to the authorities on the need to improve the standard of education in the state. “Things started changing for better after the appointment of the new Commissioner for Education, a woman that is ready to sanitise the system.”
