by MCR Correspondent

In a bid to provide quality education in his state, Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has procured about 1million assorted text books for public schools in the state.

Disclosing this at the 2019 Annual General Meeting of the Dala Old Girls Association (DOGA) in Kano State yesterday, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id Kiru, stated that the provision of the text books would go a long way to facilitate better learning for pupils in primary and secondary schools across the state.

He added that 3,000 schools have been identified and would be provided with furniture under the supervision of the Schools Based Management Committees (SBMC’s).

Sanusi Kiru noted that the government had also purchased 1,400 tablets to facilitate pilot study for e-learning in some select schools across the three Senatorial zones of the state.

He noted that the government had also made arrangements for the renovation of some girls secondary schools.

“Very soon, the state government will perform the taking-over ceremony of a secondary school building donated by Hon. Ali Sa’id at Dakatsalle in Bebeji Local Government Area, and it will be converted to girls’ boarding secondary school,” the commissioner noted.

While thanking the DOGA for their commitment towards seeing to the betterment of their alma mater, he promised that the government would do its part in assisting the school.
