Kaduna to spend N3bn on schools

04 April 2014, 10:30

Kaduna - The Kaduna State Government is to spend N3 billion  to rehabilitate 167 Primary and Junior Secondary Schools across the 23 local government areas, an official has disclosed.

 Ishaya Akau, who is the Chairman of the state’s Universal Basic Education Board, disclosed this on Thursday, when he led a group of journalists on an inspection tour of projects being rehabilitated in Kaduna, Zaria and Ikara Local Governments.

Akau said that 28 schools had been selected for special projects that included  laboratories, examination halls and additional blocks of classrooms.

According to him, the projects, which are from the 2012/2013 intervention into Universal Basic Education, are being co-sponsored by the Federal and State Governments.

The Chairman, however, warned contractors against delays in completion dates, and declared that such would not be tolerated especially since they were sure that their monies would never be delayed.

Akau reaffirmed government’s commitment towards improving the education system, particularly in the formative classes as well as the primary and junior secondary levels.
