UBEC trains 42 SUBEB financial officers in Bauchi

The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has commenced a five-day training of 42 Financial Officers of the State Universal Basic Education Boards (SUBEBs) in the North-East.

In a speech to declare the training open in Bauchi on Tuesday, the Executive Secretary of UBEC, Hamid Bobboyi, said the training became imperative due to various financial infractions allegedly committed by SUBEBs.

Bobboyi said that the training was going on simultaneously in the 36 states of the federation and FCT Abuja.

According to him, the training is to ensure efficient and effective financial management of the Universal Basic Education Intervention Fund for the attainment of the desired results in all the states of the federation.

Represented by Mr Bala Zakari, the Deputy Executive Secretary, Technical North, UBEC, Bobboyi said that at least seven financial officers of SUBEB were selected Bauchi, Borno, Taraba, Adamawa, Gombe and Yobe.

“This gathering is very crucial because it provides a platform for the critical stakeholders in the UBE finance corridor to acquire the knowledge for understanding the importance and impact of Financial Management in UBE delivery.

“Sequel to the routine observations and findings in the reports of financial monitoring exercises carried out in the 36 states and FCT, the commission discovered various financial infractions committed by SUBEBs.

“It, therefore, felt the need to ensure sound financial management of the FGN-UBE Intervention Fund and minimise infractions, bridge the knowledge gap and capacity deficit, through training.

“Financial management is one of the most important success drivers in any organisation.

“Therefore, you need adequate knowledge of financial management, like strategic planning, organising and controlling of financial resources,” Bobboyi said.

He gave assurance that at the end of the training, participants would be exposed to sound financial management of the intervention fund, thereby minimising financial infractions and ensuring value-for-money.

He urged the participants to pay attention and participate actively so that the objectives of the training could be actualised.

Also speaking, the Chairman, Bauchi SUBEB, Abubakar Dahiru, congratulated the participants for being selected for the impactful training.

Dahiru thanked the UBEC boss and his management team for selecting Bauchi State as the host state for the training.

Responding on behalf of the participants, Hassan Mohammed, also lauded UBEC for organising the training.

Mohammed promised that they would make effective use of the knowledge they acquired from the training.
