Governo Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto says his administration was committed to developing education in the state
Tambuwal, also the Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, stated this in a statement by the Director-General of the forum, CID Maduabum, and issued to newsmen, on Sunday, in Abuja.
It said that Tambuwal restated the commitment at the combined first, second and third convocation ceremony of the Sokoto State University.
The governor noted that his administration accorded education top priority in line with today’s reality, which projects knowledge as the key driver of socio-political, technological and economic development.
As part of measures to develop education in the state, his administration had planned on building 40 model government secondary schools in the state.
Pursuant to our policy of a State of Emergency on education since 2015, when we first came on board, and in the current dispensation from 2019 to date, our budgetary allocation to education has never fallen below 26 per cent.
