He therefore restated his commitment to improving the sector through investment in modern structure and instructional infrastructure at all levels of education.
Governor Bello stated this in Lokoja during the opening of a Mandatory Continuing Professional Training, MCPT, workshop, organised by the All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS).
The governor who was represented by his deputy, Chief Edward Onoja, said challenges in human existence could only be solved through adequate deployments of core educational values as character, capacity and service.
Governor Bello said his administration had continued to increase the value of education in the state by ensuring construction of modern infrastructure, and the recruitment and training of teachers for a conducive environment and improved teaching and learning.
In their separate remarks the ANCOPSS, North Central, Chairman, Christopher Ogiri and the Kogi State President, of ANCOPSS, Robert Awodi Yusufu, said the organization which is recognized by the federal government would continue to maintain the highest ethical professionalism as it does not only update and inform principals of global best practices in educational administration and management but also advises the federal and state governments on how best to run secondary education in Nigeria.
The theme for this years training was Emerging Administrative and Management Innovations and Techniques For Handling Contemporary Issues and Challenges in Secondary Education, and was attended by principals of public secondary schools, from Niger, Plateau, Benue, Kwara, Nasarawa Kogi States and the FCT, Abuja.
