Kebbi to construct N85m nomadic schools

25 October 2012, 11:05

Birnin Kebbi - The Kebbi State Government has earmarked N85 million for the construction of additional nomadic primary schools to encourage education among the children of the nomads.  

Alhaji Nasiru Masama, the Senior Special Assistant on Fulani Matters to Gov. Saidu Dakingari, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday that the schools would be strategically located.    

He said that additional primary schools would be established this year in collaboration with the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB).    

He said that qualified teachers would also be recruited for the new schools for early commencement of learning as well as supply learning materials in consonance with current school curriculum.     

Masama, however, called on the nomads to ensure enrolment of their children in the schools since education was free.    

In another development, the SSA said that animals’ feeds worth N15.5 million had been procured for sale at subsidised rates to pastorals and livestock producers.

He said that this would boost livestock production and ensure consumption of hygienic beef.
