INTRODUCTION

The Federal Government of Nigeria set aside 2% of its Consolidated


Revenue Fund (CRF) for the successful implementation of the
Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme especially in
developing the much-needed infrastructure across the States of the
Federation including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The share
for each State is subject to the quarterly amount received by the
Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) from the Federal
Government, and it is worthy to note that every State and the FCT is
entitled to access the grant (UBEC, 2012). However, for the States
to be eligible to draw-down the matching grant, they are required
to provide an equal amount as counterpart contribution as their
commitments in the execution of such project(s), in accordance
with Section 11(2) of the Universal Basic Education (UBE) Act
2004. The contribution is not less than 50% which is usually the
total cost of projects.

The presentation of Action Plan by State Universal Basic Education


Boards (SUBEBs) and Federal Capital Territory Universal Basic
Education Board (FCT UBEB) is another essential requirement for
accessing the UBE intervention fund, and as a result each Board
is mandated to prepare and submit an Action Plan for vetting and
approval by UBEC. The presentation which is usually done on a
quarterly or yearly basis provides clarity on intervention projects
to be implemented in public primary and junior secondary schools,
project description, beneficiary schools, resources needed (unit
costs and total costs), and duration of execution.

This report focused on the monitoring exercise conducted by


Independent Monitors with regard to the implementation of Year
2014 Federal Capital Territory Universal Basic Education Board
(FCT UBEB) Action Plan.
1
AIM AND OBJECTIVES

The overall aim of the monitoring exercise is to track the utilisation


of the Universal Basic Education (UBE) matching grant in the
Federal Capital Territory (FCT) towards ensuring improvement in
teaching and learning.

Specific objectives are to:


1. Encourage citizens participation in monitoring of UBE projects
2. Checkmate the use of sub-standard materials
3. Ensure timely project delivery by contractors
4. Collate school needs assessment to aid further engagement
with FCT UBEB
5. Increase government’s responsiveness to citizens’ agitations
and priorities

BRIEF ABOUT YEAR 2014 FCT UBEB ACTION PLAN

The sum of N952,297,295.40 was allocated to the Federal Capital


Territory as UBE intervention fund for 2014 Third and Fourth
Quarter. The fund covered four (4) components, namely: Early
Childhood Care and Development (ECCDE) with N76,183,781.80;
Primary N514,240,540.60; Junior Secondary School (JSS)
N342,827,027.06; and Monitoring N19,045,945.94.

The FCT UBEB Action Plan also detailed what the intervention
fund released would be expended on cut-across infrastructural
development (such as construction and rehabilitation of classrooms,
provision of recreational facilities, construction of fences, supply of
furniture, drilling of boreholes, and construction of metal tanks),
and monitoring of the implementation of the projects.

2
METHODS

Human Development Initiatives (HDI) constituted and trained


a group of Independent Monitors saddled with the responsibility
of monitoring the implementation of UBE projects in FCT. The
Independent Monitors comprise representatives of Parents Teacher
Associations (PTAs), Community Development Associations
(CDAs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). The team
members were constituted during a public sensitisation programme
on the content of Year 2014 and 2015 FCT UBEB Action Plans
following its release by the Universal Basic Education Commission
(UBEC). Subsequently, a special training was organised for the
Monitors to enhance their knowledge on basic information about
the UBE programme, UBE intervention fund, Action Plan, as well
as Monitoring and Evaluation tools.

The monitoring exercise was carried out by the monitoring team


between November 2017 and May 2018, with the aid of Monitoring
and Evaluation (M&E) tools designed by HDI for tracking projects,
that is, Construction, Renovation/Rehabilitation work, Fencing and
supply of Furniture. The tools were also used to collate additional
facilities required by the beneficiary schools to aid planning and
engagement with relevant government institutions, most especially
FCT UBEB. The additional information gathered is expected to aid
the development of subsequent Action Plans.

The projects monitored were randomly selected from the Board’s


Action Plan since it was impossible to track all the projects due to
time constraint, and paucity of funds.

FINDINGS

Below are the major findings from the monitoring exercise across
beneficiary schools:
1. Poor plastering and flooring (Terrazzo) due to inadequate
cement and poor cement mixture.
2. Some of the doors, windows, and toilets tiles sighted were not
satisfactory.
3. Use of sub-standard roofing materials which resulted to roof
leakages.
4. Use of low quality woods for furniture.
5. Abandonment of ECCDE recreational facilities, fencing and
supply of 3 sets of furniture at Chibri Primary School, Kuje.
6. Abandonment of rehabilitation of a block of 2 classrooms with
office and store at New Kutunku Primary School, and Tsaumi
Primary School Gwagwalada.
7. Non-implementation of rehabilitation of blocks of classrooms,
and rehabilitation of a block of Science/Intro Tech. Laboratory
at Piwoyi Primary School, AMAC and Junior Secondary
School, Kwali respectively.
8. Constructions of school buildings were generally non-inclusive
and accessible for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), (ramps,
brails, etc).
9. It was observed that most of the projects were already
implemented even before the UBE intervention fund was
accessed. However, the implementation period of some of
the projects was not in accordance with the expected project
duration.
10. Majority of the schools visited need more qualified teachers,
furniture for pupils/students and teachers, teaching aids and
instructional materials, fences and school gates, school halls,
libraries and science laboratory equipment, boreholes, toilets,
amongst others.
34
CHALLENGES

1. The difficulty of getting approval from FCT UBEB to


collaborate with HDI and its cluster to monitor on-going UBE
projects in the FCT despite the recognition of roles of civil
society in governance of basic education.
2. Denying Monitors access to project site by some school
administrators.
3. Lack of access to Bill of quantity of projects for UBE Action
Plans made it impossible to track specifications of building
materials used.
4. Difficulty on the part of monitors in locating some beneficiary
schools especially those in remote areas.

RECOMMENDATIONS

• FCT UNIVERSAL BASIC EDUCATION BOARD


1. The Board should ensure close supervision of building
contractors in collaboration PTAs, CDAs, and CSOs right
from the foundation level to the final stage to mitigate the re-
occurrence of use of sub-standard materials for infrastructural
projects which could endanger the lives of the pupils.
2. Provision and supply of furniture for pupils/students and
teachers, teaching aids and instructional materials, library and
science laboratory equipment in schools should be prioritized
by the Board.
3. There is a need for the Board to implement UBE policy on
civic participation in governance of basic education by
strengthening alliance with Civil Society Organisations
(CSOs) and other education stakeholders.
4. Construction and rehabilitation of school buildings should
be friendlier for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). The
35
classrooms, toilets, offices etc. should be made accessible.
5. Proactive disclosure of approved UBE Action Plans, bill of
quantity of projects in the public domain via website and
other social media platforms to enhance civic participation in
tracking the implementation of projects.
6. Launch a user-friendly interactive platform through which
citizens can engage the Board and share reports on the
implementation of projects in their Local Government Areas,
wards and communities.
7. The Board should organise periodic town hall meetings across
Area Councils to give account of its stewardship in order to
keep the public abreast of the development in the sub-sector.
8. The Board should follow due procurement processes such
as advertisement of call to bids, report of evaluation of bids,
details of award of contracts and post contract activities etc. to
enhance transparency and accountability.
9. Collate details of defaulting Contractors and ensure such
Contractors are blacklisted and reported to anti-corruption
agencies.

• UNIVERSAL BASIC EDUCATION COMMISSION (UBEC


1. The Commission should design a prototype school building
that is friendly for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) which
should be adopted by SUBEBs and FCT UBEB. Facilities in
the prototype schools such as ramps, brails and so on must
be accessible by children with disabilities in order to enhance
inclusive education.
2. The Commission should publicise States’ UBE Action Plans
and Bill of quantity of projects on its website to enhance
independent civic participation in monitoring of UBE projects.
3. The Commission should set up Special Monitoring Team (SMT)
comprising representatives of the Civil Society Organisations
36
(CSOs), School Based Management Committees (SBMCs),
Parents Teacher Associations (PTAs) and the media to jointly
monitor UBE projects in all States and Federal Capital
Territory.

CONCLUSION

This report documented findings of the Independent Monitors on


the implementation of Year 2014 (third and fourth quarter) UBE
Action Plan by FCT UBEB with the UBE Intervention Fund. The
monitoring team monitored randomly selected projects contained
in the Action Plan. It is worthy to state that some of the findings
could be attributed to weak civic participation in governance of
basic education. Hence, there is need for FCT UBEB to ensure the
participation of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), School Based
Management Committees (SBMCs), Parents Teacher Associations
(PTAs), Faith Based Organisations (FBOs), and Community
Development Associations (CDAs) in tracking UBE projects.
