Daily Trust - - ASO CHRONICLE - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The Sec­re­tary of the Lo­cal Ed­u­ca­tion Au­thor­ity (LEA), Abaji Area Coun­cil, Dr Has­san Suleiman, said he will put mea­sures in place to en­cour­age girl-child ed­u­ca­tion in the area.

Suleiman, who is also the Na­tional Pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­re­taries of Nige­ria (AESN), spoke on Sat­ur­day at the Grad­u­a­tion/Prize Giv­ing Day of the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment Girls Col­lege (FGC), in the area.

He said that he would meet with par­ents and en­lighten them on the im­por­tance of girl-child ed­u­ca­tion in the so­ci­ety.

The LEA sec­re­tary, who was the chair­man of the oc­ca­sion, con­grat­u­lated the grad­u­at­ing stu­dents and urged them to be good am­bas­sadors of the school.

He also thanked the man­age­ment of the col­lege, es­pe­cially teach­ers, for im­part­ing knowl­edge in the stu­dents.

The prin­ci­pal of the col­lege, Ha­jiya Binta Ti­j­jani Ab­dulka­dir, said that stu­dents of the col­lege were reg­u­lar par­tic­i­pants in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties such as games, clubs and so­ci­ety meet­ings, among oth­ers.

“It might also in­ter­est my guests here to know that the col­lege par­tic­i­pated in a de­bate or­gan­ised by the US Em­bassy in Nige­ria, where our stu­dent, Eu­nice Torkula, emerged win­ner and she will be trav­el­ling to Amer­ica for a three-week hol­i­day in Au­gust this year,” she said.

She com­mended the min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion, Par­ents Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of the col­lege and the school’s man­age­ment com­mit­tee for pro­vid­ing the needed fa­cil­i­ties in the col­lege.
