This, according to government, is in line with Governor Mbah’s promise to turn the state’s education sector around.

It is recalled that the Mbah Administration earmarked N158.78bn, representing 33 per cent of the state’s 2024 budget for the education sector. This is the highest both in terms of per capita and percentage of total budget sum in the country as well as higher than UNESCO’s recommended benchmark of 15 per cent – 20 per cent of total annual budget.
