“A group of 25 women have been contributing money to build their communities’ schools because they never had one. I visited the communities today, and I returned the money, N1,000,000, which is equivalent of what they have spent so far. We will continue the good work that they have started by expanding the classrooms and improving the facilities,” the governor wrote.

He added, “I’m really inspired by the actions of these women. They have, over the years, taken a fraction of the money they received from Federal Government’s Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme and contributed it to building schools in their own communities.

“This is a testament that President Muhammadu Buhari’s social investment programmes are working and impacting lives.”

“As a government, we will continue to invest in education despite the limited resources. We have concluded plans to fix 600 elementary schools all over the state over the next few years and we are also employing about 5,000 skilled teachers through a transparent process to shore up the deficits in schools all over the state,” he concluded.
