Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal has said that his government will bring back the glory of education in the region.
At the formal opening ceremony for the start of the state’s school building and renovation project, Lawal provided the guarantee.
Sulaiman Bala Idris, the governor’s spokesperson, stated in a statement that the State Government is giving education top priority in order to keep its campaign pledges.
He claims that the projects’ start date corresponds with the State of Emergency that has been imposed on the education sector.
“The Governor expressed his commitment to completely revamping the education sector during the presentation of award letters for school construction and renovation in Zamfara State,” the statement said.
In keeping with the government’s declaration of a state of emergency, the flag-off exercise involves building and renovating classrooms, restrooms, school fences, and providing furnishings for instructors and kids in our schools.
The work will be carried out by reliable local contractors. One of the projects’ main goals is to completely renovate the 14 Local Government Areas’ run-down schools. Not only that, but there are also new ones—Tsangaya schools in the three zones of Anka, Kaura Namoda, and Gusau.
The government has set aside 4,346,450,209.19 Naira, or four billion, three hundred and forty-six million, four hundred and fifty thousand, two hundred and nine Naira, nineteen kobo, just for the implementation of these projects. The integrity and prior expertise managing comparable projects have played a major role in the careful selection of the project contractors.
Throughout the state’s 14 local government districts, 245 schools will be built or renovated as part of this initiative. In addition, 9,542 two-seater desks will be given to children in the 14 local government regions’ schools.
