Dear Governor Oyetola,

RE: SECTION 18 CONSTITUTION OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA 1999 (AS AMENDED) AND SECTION 2 COMPULSORY, FREE UNIVERSAL BASIC EDUCATION ACT, 2004

We write to congratulate President Mohammadu Buhari for calling on Governors of states to rigorously enforce the constitutional and statutory provisions on free and compulsory basic education guaranteed by Section 18 of the 1999 constitution (as amended) and Section 2 of the Compulsory, Free Universal Basic Education Etc. Act of 2004. 

It is our expectation going forward that every governor and local government will work to ensure that our schools offer the right opportunity and provide the needed materials and teachers for basic education.

In order to support governments’ effort, HURILAWS has initiated a nationwide monitoring programme to ensure compliance by states with Section 18 of the 1999 constitution (as amended) and Section 2 of the Compulsory, Free Universal Basic Education Etc. Act of 2004.

Please accept assurances of our highest regards
