The administrative Secretary/Consultant of the association, Mr. Nicholas Agboola, said this during a two-day retreat of National Association of Local Government Education Secretaries of Nigeria (NAESN) in Benin City.

The retreat according to the association  is “aimed to take stock of basic education nation-wide, the challenges and achievements within the Universal Basic Education (UBE) Act, 2004.

According to him, “Nigerians will attest to the fact that the  elites have destroyed public schools system and build their own.”

Agboola said the education Secretaries are at the base of managing UBE programmes in schools at their various local governments. 

He however lamented that Edo delegates were absent at the retreat despite it is been held the State.

According to him, “I was made to understand that they (Edo delegates) were absent because a private firm in Lagos is the sole manager (consultant) of public schools in the State”.

The National president of the association, Dr. Hassan Sule said the retreat would afford  the education secretaries to explore their potentials.
