He famous that the step grew to become crucial on the premise that failure to pay the counterpart fund would disqualify the state from receiving her share of the UBEC/State Common Fundamental Schooling funding.

The assertion stated: “Being a Federal and state authorities partnership, each tiers are required to provide you with their respective 50 per cent contributions earlier than the overall sum is launched to the state. Recall that Governor Kayode Fayemi has considerably defrayed the excellent counterpart funds for the years 2016, 2017 and 2018 UBEC/SUBEB initiatives, which was initially uncared for by the earlier  administration, and reimbursement remains to be on.”
