CBN to execute school project in Gombe

12 February 2013, 09:24

Gombe - The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Monday said it would execute a project in one of the schools at Dukku Emirate in Gombe State as part of the bank's intervention programmes in education.

The CBN Governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido, disclosed this during a visit to the Emir of Dukku, Haruna Rasheed in Dukku.

Lamido told the Emir to identify the school where the bank would execute the project.

``We have good news. The Central Bank of Nigeria is embarking on projects in schools this year.

``We will like the Emir to name a school in Dukku so that we will embark on the project,” he said.

Sanusi commiserated with the new Emir over the death of his father, Alhaji Abdulrasheed and congratulated him on his appointment.

He said that the appointment of the new Emir would bring peace and development in Dukku Emirate and Gombe as a whole.

Responding, the Emir thanked the CBN governor, management and staff of the bank for identifying with him during the death of his father.

Speaking with newsmen after the visit, the governor said the project to be executed in Dukku was in line with the bank’s policy.

``Usually CBN does interventions every year and what we said is that this year part of our interventions will be in Dukku because we do it in every zone of the country.

``Last year, we did it in Borno State and this year, we will do it in Gombe State,” he said.
