The Federal Government has lamented the poor condition and neglect of special vocational schools for out-of-school children by some state governments. Executive Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Dr. Hamid Bobboyi who stated this during an advocacy visit and monitoring of projects executed by the commission in Abia and Akwa Ibom states, said the centres were built to provide specific opportunities for out-of-school youths in each of the states of the Southeast and South-South geo-political zones It would be recalled that the special vocational schools were built by the Federal Government during the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan through the 2014 special intervention programme of UBEC and handed over to states to manage as part of efforts to reduce the high rate of out-of-school children in the country. Bobboyi, who was represented by the Deputy Executive Secretary (Technical), Dr Sharon Oriero-Oviemuna, stated that the schools were built to provide specific opportunities for out-of-school youths in each of the states to access and complete a functional and skill based basic education programme.
