Anambra To Domesticate NSSEC Law In May – Speaker


Rt. Hon. Somtochukwu Udeze, Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, promised that the state would domesticate the National Senior Secondary Education Commission (NSSEC) law within six weeks.

During the Post Primary Schools Service Commission (PPSSC) advocacy and sensitization visit to the State, the speaker made this revelation at the PPSSC headquarters in Awka.


In the person of Hon. Emmanuel Okpalaeke, Chairman of the House Committee on Education, Udeze stated that the bill would allow the state to have access to the facilities that the Commission is providing.


In addition to assuring teachers of greater welfare, he declared the State Assembly’s willingness to support the Commission as needed.


NSSEC Executive Secretary Dr. Iyela Ajayi stated that the state of Anambra was selected as the commission’s Southeast zonal headquarters due to Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s transformation of the state’s educational system.


In order for Anambra to benefit from the Commission, Ajayi, through Head of the Senior Secondary Education Department Mr. Mohammed Salihu, emphasised that the state must domesticate the NSSEC law.

He listed the Commission’s responsibilities, which included creating policy guidelines for the management of senior secondary education programmes in Nigeria and establishing and implementing the National Minimum Standards for Senior Secondary Education in Nigeria.


“The Commission is also mandated to advise Federal Government on the funding and development of senior secondary education in Nigeria, support national capacity building for teachers and managers of senior secondary education in Nigeria, among others,” he added.


Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, the State Commissioner for Education, had earlier praised NSSEC for opening the Southeast Zonal office in Anambra.


Since Prof. Chukwuma Soludo became the state’s governor, the education sector has seen constant change, and she called this event an epochal one.


Prof. Nkechi Ikediugwu, Chairman of the PPSSC, Awka, stressed that no nation or state could advance beyond its current level of education and emphasised the need to foster and develop a climate that is supportive of education in the Southeast, and specifically in Anambra.


She expressed her gratitude to Professor Tahir Mamman, the Minister of Education, and her colleagues from NSSEC for their presence in the state, which has not only brought about change but has also accelerated the process of determining the direction the education sector will take.
