Tanimu A. Tahir, Maiduguri
The leadership of CODE (Connected Development) embarked on 2-days workshop to strengthen the professional capacity of School-Based Management Committees (SBMCs) in Borno State.The event which began on 3rd of October,2018 at precisely 9:30AM at the Borno State Universal Basic Education Board Office, along Kano/Maiduguri road, Maiduguri, was chiefly supported by Open Society Initiative For West Africa (OSIWA).
Welcoming the leadership of Connected Development and the capacity strengthening participants, the Executive chairman of Borno state Universal Basic Education Board who was fully and actively represented by the Ag Permanent Secretary Alhaji Usman Allamin, expressed profound gratitude to Almighty God for CODE and lauded the uncommon efforts of the organization.He said,
“It wasn’t an ordinary intervention to have seen construction of classrooms in Mairi Kuwait community primary school well erected after a long negligence by the contractor and perhaps the cardinal supply side.
“Indeed the credit of that awesome intervention goes to Follow the Money.Thank you very much for that.And now that you are here to strengthen the capacity of our staff,it makes it impossible to thank you enough.We really appreciate it…”
Opening the program to set the agenda up and running, Hamzat Lawal, the Chief Executive Officer of Connected Development, appreciated the leadership of Borno SUBEB,thanked the participants and greatly also appreciated the indispensable support of Open Society Initiative For West Africa (OSIWA).In his words, Hamzat Lawal had this to say,”we’re here to share experiences and knowledge and also to add value to our existing commitments.Borno SUBEB is by our assessment the most transparent in Northeast.So you’re so far our best partners and we really appreciate the executive chairman and members of staff that believe in our cause.At the end of the day,I expect us to have not shared only successes but challenges as well.I also want to greatly appreciate Open society initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) for supporting this program.we really thank them for this laudable contribution….”
One could apparently notice the excitement in the countenances of the trainees as it was to them a pacesetter program and of course it certainly was, particularly considering the unheard demands of such trainings in the administrative folds.
Furthermore, the CEO of CODE, Hamzat Lawal,Borno state chapter Lead of CODE, Abubakar Sadiq Mu’azu and Brian( also of CODE) delivered some sought-after lectures on how the capacity of the trainees could be improved for effective service delivery.
