Business Owners Get Federal Govt’s N150,000 Grant In Ekiti


Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has declared a state of emergency in education in Kano State.

This was disclosed during a grand ceremony at the Government House yesterday.

Governor Yusuf highlighted the urgent need for this declaration due to the significant decay in both educational quality and infrastructure.

“Our administration has commenced a total overhaul, focusing on academic and infrastructure development.

“A key initiative under this overhaul includes promoting girl-child education by rehabilitating and deploying over 70 luxurious buses to transport female students to secondary schools in metropolitan areas. This measure aims to improve access to education for girls and reduce the dropout rate.

“Despite the sector’s decay, we have begun rehabilitating schools and providing instructional materials to ensure effective service delivery,” the governor said.

Additionally, the state government has paid the registration fees for Kano indigenes studying at various higher institutions nationwide.

To support educators, Governor Yusuf announced that over N300 million had been allocated for soft loans to teachers to boost their morale.

Yusuf also outlined plans for the extensive renovation of all primary and junior secondary schools in the state. This renovation will include providing new seating for students, painting, and refurbishing toilets and staff offices. The project is expected to be completed within the next two academic sessions. Minor repairs will be managed by CRC, Kwankwasiyya, Lafiya Jari, and Kano Pro-PA, while major repairs will be overseen by the Ministry of Education and the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) through competitive bidding.
