Falana emphasizes that failure to access the funds by January 15, 2024, could lead ASCAB to seek a mandamus order compelling prompt action.

He cites alarming statistics, revealing that Nigeria has the highest number of out-of-school children globally, and calls for the disbursement of funds by UBEC due to state governments’ non-compliance with the Education Reforms Act.

Urgent measures are urged to register the 20.2 million out-of-school children, with a looming deadline for government action.
