Governor Dikko Radda has approved ₦2.7 billion as part of the payment to build 75 new junior and senior secondary schools in Katsina.

In a statement on Wednesday, Ibrahim Kalau, the governor’s chief press secretary, disclosed that the ₦2.7 billion represented only 20 per cent of the total amount to pay contractors handling the construction projects.

He said the approval was to fulfil one of the governor’s campaign pledges.

“Radda has approved the release of ₦2,737,603 billion for the construction of 75 junior and secondary schools across all the 34 local government areas (LGAs) of Katsina state,” said the statement. “He authorised the contractors to complete the entire project within 12 months.”

The governor added, “Without a doubt, this capital project will significantly boost education in Katsina State.”
