Be ICT compliant to enhance your efficiency in schools..... Famurewa challenge teachers of public schools.

The Executive Chairman, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board, Hon. Ajibola Famurewa has called on public school teachers to be part of the world culture brought about by being computer literate.


Apart from enhancing efficiency and professionalism, Famurewa similarly observed that ICT/ Computer literacy is now the new world order which school teachers and administrators must embrace.


The Osun Subeb boss stated these in a speech delivered at a 5-day training workshop program at Elerinmosa computer Hub in Erin-osun, organized by Universal Basic Education Commission,  UBEC,  Abuja in collaboration with Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) 


The workshop  is ongoing concurrently in the three Senatorial Districts of the state, comprising Osun Central,Osun East and Osun West .

It is basically put in place for all public Primary Schools computer teachers and education managers.

Hon. Famurewa said the present administration in the state of Osun under the leadership of Governor Adegboya Oyetola is passionate about the development of the Education sector .

To this end , the former Federal lawmaker eulogized  the governor's support at all times towards the need to give school children the opportunity of having adequate computer knowledge right from the basic levels of their educational attainment.

The SUBEB Boss further  noted that ICT/Computer knowledge has become so important that it enhances workflow and overall experience of people especially teachers  within a given workplace.


To drive home his assertions, Hon . Famurewa recalled that last year when COVID 19 was at its peak which necessitated the closure of all schools, pupils and students had the opportunity of still enjoying their education at home with the mother of all opportunities provided by information and communication technologies .


"Notwithstanding the COVID 19 pandemic which made government of the State of Osun just like other states in Nigeria to impose a lockdown mechanism, our children were still able to keep the trend of their learning going unabated ." Famurewa told the participants to justify the essential of being computer and ICT literate.

Earlier in his welcome address , the Executive Secretary, Osun SUBEB, Mr Adeoye Bakare thanked Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC Abuja, for its unrelenting efforts at giving series of training workshops to teachers in order to enhance and refresh  their knowledge.

According to Mr Bakare this has  placed public school teachers and administrators  above their counterparts in the private sector.


The Osun SUBEB Executive Secretary also acknowledged and lauded the support and cooperation of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola  for always  providing an   enabling environment for education to thrive in the state of Osun.

Just like  earlier remarks made by Hon. Famurewa, Mr Bakare also emphasised the uniqueness and countless advantages of being computer literate.


He therefore charged the  participants to  strive at all times to improve their teaching methodologies through computer knowledge.

In their separate remarks, an officer from UBEC Office, Abuja,Mr David Olusegun and the lead  resource Person at the workshop who is a Director Media and Partnership from Osun State College of Technology, Esa-oke separately noted  the importance of  the training workshop.

They concluded that it is very germane for teachers and other stakeholders in and outside education sector.

Sighting examples of  school children who were unable to receive online lessons at home during COVID-19 pandemic due to lack ICT and Computer knowledge by their teachers, the resource persons alluded to the fact that any teacher worth his/ her calling as a professional must see and regard Computer as part of the new world order.

They also urged the participants to show utmost interest in ICT knowledge .

The workshop continues today throughout the three Senatorial districts of the state.
