The Executive Secretary of Education Trust Fund (ETF), Prof. Mohammed Yakubu, yesterday in Abuja said that N13.2 billion has been allocated to senior and basic education projects. Professor Mohammed stated this during the 2009 ETF Annual Strategic Planning Workshop for state ministries of Education and State Universal Basic education Boards (SUBEBS) held at NUC, Abuja. He said that ETF was maintaining last year's allocation of N13.2 billion, adding that it is the highest in the history of ETF. Professor Yakubu explained that misplacement of priorities had been identified as one of the problems created by states in the proper utilisation and management of ETF projects in the states. According to him, the state ministries of education and SUBEB were the greater defaulters of unaccessed fund last year, adding that the states have failed to grow beyond ETF. He revealed that the ETF had tried to pioneer new innovation years before deploying science and ICT equipment with improved teaching of mathematics to schools. The ETF boss stressed that ETF does not require an elaborate action plan when submitting its allocation to SUBEB.
