Jaji said that her office hosted a two-day Southwest Education Summit, coordinated by the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) Commission and the UK-Department for International Development, to discuss the factors militating against expected learning outcomes in schools, adding that her office also participated in the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) programme on the 2nd African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) towards achieving mutually agreed goals and ensuring compliance with agreed political, economic and corporate governance values, codes and standards in Africa.
