North far behind in education – TY Danjuma
Lieutenant General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd) said yesterday that the northern part of the country is far behind in education and urged the private sector and individuals to set up secondary schools and universities in the region. He was speaking as the special guest.
Danjuma, who spoke in Abuja, said taking care of education perpetually takes care of every other sector.
“We cannot leave education in the hands of the government alone, other private individuals like Datti (Pro Chancellor of Baze) should strive to set up university and secondary schools to run side by side government schools”, he said. He commended the founder of Baze, and urged him not to relent in his endeavours.
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof Tahir Mamman, said the institution is proud to be graduating 230 students from three faculties of Law, Computing and Applied Science and Management and Social Sciences.
He urged the graduating students to approach the new world with brevity and wisdom.
