Nigeria - Technical Education Project (English)

This is the Implementation Completion Report (ICR) for the Technical Education Project in Nigeria. Its principal objectives were to assist the Federal Government's program of: (a) improving the quality and efficiency of middle-level technical institutions; and (b) strengthening planning, management and coordination of technical and vocational education at the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), the Federal Ministry of Education (FME) and at the Project Implementation Unit (PIU). Bank's performance was satisfactory. Borrower's performance was satisfactory. The key lessons learned were as follows: (i) condition for loan effectiveness should not lead to a situation in which the beneficiaries would sign a time-based, rather than an activity-based contract; (ii) beneficiary institutions should be more actively involved in project appraisal; (iii) counterpart funds should be vigorously pursued through the Ministry of Finance and also, allocated funds should be transferred directly to the project account ;(iv) project funding of major components should be fully reimbursed by the World Bank and this will prevent non completion of vital project components due to inadequate counterpart fund; and (V) communication between all parties involved in project implementation should be encouraged on a day to day basis.
