Concept of Implementation
Implementation is the act of executing a plan, a policy or an assignment. Ogbonnaya (2003) views implementation as the process of carrying out objectives or a plan. It is the process of performing a task, an activity or objective. Okoli (2007) described it as the state where the preparation made earlier, the plans, designs and analyses proposed are tested to see how real they are. Implementation therefore, connotes the activities of transforming ideas and policy into an identified objective.
Concept of UBE Programme
Universal Basic Education Programme is a people’s programme. The Federal Government is essentially the initiator and guide to the prosecution of the programme. Realizing the problem of education at the basic level, the Federal Government came up with a clear policy of expanding access to education to all Nigerians and restoring the system to its past glory. This, in practical terms, means aggressive enrolments-derives, massive training and retraining of teachers, provision of instructional materials, infrastructural facilities, funds and modernizing the curriculum to be in line with the country’s needs and aspiration (UBE 2004).
