The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday declared that Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (EDOBEST) school programme does not inspire hope.
It said the education policy which was relaunched by Governor Godwin Obaseki with five key pillars including innovative teaching and skill acquisition in March 2022.
The state publicity Secretary of APC, Peter Uwadiae Igbinigie made the allegation, following recent media reports on Ofumwengbe Primary school in the State where the pupils sit on the bare floor of a building with leaking roof to learn.
“Whereas, the Edo State Government keeps singing with the EDOBEST programme to have greatly changed the narrative in the State.
“But while Oshiomhole was in charge, the practicality of what the education system should be, was obvious: red roof revolution, holistic infrastructure development and teachers employment.
“Since the coming of the Obaseki’s administration, no employment of teachers, infrastructure are in utter decay; underlining the fact that its EDOBEST programme is not only a total failure, but a charade.
“Ultimately, this is not how the education sector should be as compared to the dreams of our forebears”, according to the statement which also dwelt on other issues of public interest.
The State Commissioner for Education, Joan Oviawe could not be reached for comments.
