The newly-appointed Executive Chairman of the Zamfara State Universal Basic Education Board, Prof Nasir Garba Anka, has vowed to upgrade basic education and prioritize teachers’ welfare in the state.
Anka disclosed at a reception organised by the management and staff of the board to welcome him at the board’s headquarters in Gusau, the state capital.
The new ZSUBEB boss noted that staff welfare is a top priority, as it serves as a crucial motivator for effective work.
He said that without proper welfare and adequate remuneration, the teaching and learning process might face challenges.
“I’m a classroom teacher. It, therefore, pains me whenever I see teachers in bad conditions. I must work assiduously to ensure their welfare,” declared Anka.
Anka called on the management and staff of the board to partner with him to achieve the set objectives for revamping the educational sector of the state.
“My administration at the Zamfara State Universal Basic Education Board will ensure inclusiveness for better results.
“Governor Dauda Lawal has already declared a state of emergency on education and assured to contribute massively for the betterment of the educational sector in the state.”
