The lady who emerged victorious in the 37th National Qur'anic Competition, Aisha AbdulMutallib, and her husband have been awarded two houses and two Hajj seats.
Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni made the donation in Damaturu on Thursday where he also presented a check of N4 million to Abdulmutallib for emerging as the overall best in the competition held in Gusau, Zamfara.
He also approved an undisclosed number of Hajj seats to the staff of the state’s Arabic and Islamic Board and teachers of the Islamic school attended by the winner for their effort in nurturing her to achieve the feat.
He said that the winner, a native of Potiskum Local Government Area, has done the state proud, noting that the State Emergency Initiative on Education introduced in 2019 was yielding good results.
To boost the champion’s morale, Buni said the government would sponsor her education at the school of her choice and appoint her as Laison Officer representing the state anywhere.
The governor promised to continue to implement policies and programmes geared towards promoting Western and Islamic education in the state.
Earlier, the Commissioner for Education, Basic and Secondary Education, Mohammad Idris requested additional Hajj seats for the board members and the school.
In her remarks, the champion lauded the gesture, adding that she would maintain the tempo.
