Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Yusha’u A. Ibrahim, Kano

Kano State Gover­nor Ab­dul­lahi Umar Gan­duje said he pri­ori­tised ed­u­ca­tion to en­sure that chil­dren in the state do not be­come li­a­bil­i­ties in fu­ture.

The gover­nor said, “The chil­dren we have in the state, if not prop­erly ed­u­cated will be­come li­a­bil­i­ties in the fu­ture. But if prop­erly ed­u­cated, they will be­come as­sets. There­fore, we want ed­u­cate them so that they can work in ev­ery sec­tor of hu­man en­deav­our.”

Gan­duje said the state was es­tab­lish­ing more univer­si­ties to make ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion ac­ces­si­ble to in­di­genes, adding that Kano wants to be a fo­cal point to other states in the fed­er­a­tion.

He ap­pealed to the man­age­ment of Tetfund to con­tinue to sup­port the state.

of Pro­fes­sor Suleiman Elias Bo­goro, told the gover­nor that they were in Kano to com­mis­sion multi-bil­lion naira projects at Bayero Univer­sity.
