Kano: Newly Sworn In Governor Disheartened By Number Of Out

Kano Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano has decried the rise in the number of out of school children in Kano.

He said this as part of his inaugural speech on Monday in Kano.

He accused the Ganduje adminstration of deliberately neglecting the education sector to rot.

"The destruction that was visited on our education sector in the last eight 
years is very disheartening.

"Arising from deliberate neglect and wrong 
policies, the number of out-of-school children in our state has astronomically increased.

"The number of college drop-outs has also risen to a scary height," he stated.

Abba Kabir Yusuf was quick to however note that his adminstration plans to reverse all the negatives in the education sector.

"We will take these emergency measures beginning from today to rescue our 
education system and ensure the enrolment of all out-of-school children.

"Our community reorientation committees, CRC, would be reactivated and continue to function as a vehicle for the implementation of our basic education agenda."

He also pointed out that the girl child education would receive the attention it deserves.

"All the girl-child education buses for transporting girl-child to and from schools would resume operation as soon as possible.

"The school buses that were immorally sold will be recovered and new ones will 
be purchased to add to the fleet.

"The de-boarding of all girls schools by the last administration will be  revisited in due course, we will resume our policy of Incentivise enrolment by providing free uniform, free books and one meal per pupil per day in our primary schools," he assured.

Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf said many policies have been put in place to including reconstruction of schools and reopening of abandoned one to further improve education in the state.
