Residents laud Kwankwaso’s adult literay programme

03 January 2013, 08:02

Kano - Some Kano residents on Wednesday in Kano commended Gov. Rabiu Kwankwaso’s administration for initiating adult literacy classes in the state. Some of the prospective students of the classes, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), expressed optimism that the initiative give them a new lease of life.

"I was encouraged by my children to enroll into the classes to be formally educated,’’ Malam Sanda Uwaisu said. Uwaisu said he wished that someday he would be able to read newspapers written in Hausa as he had always relied on his children to read and then tell him the news.

Malam Yahuza Saminu, a resident of Dala area of Kano, said he didi not have the opportunity to have formal education as his father was against it. "I look forward to learning to read and write. I know it will help me in my daily affairs although I’m a bit old now,” Saminu said. Malama Sadiya Ahmed, a resident of Zawachiki, said she always felt sad when her neighbours had to assist her kids with their home works.

"I wish to assist, even, my grandchildren with their home work because I always envied women who helped their children with their homework.’’ NAN reports that the Kwankwaso administration has provided 8,074 adult literacy classes in its aim to achieve the MDGs by 2015. About 403,700 people are expected to benefit from the project that is aimed at attaining about 95 per cent adult literacy level in the state.
