Despite the NGN40bn budgeted for Education in Ogun state in 2016 appropriation law, the state cannot provide the counterpart funding to access the Universal Basic Education (UBE) fund to improve primary education.

Basic education should be the right of every child, the inability of the state to provide the counterpart funding to access the UBE fund means the state is denying millions of children their right. We all need to act so the next generation of future leaders are well equipped right from the foundation level.
