Borno IDPs Gets Special Primary, Secondary Schools from Kano Govt

Primary and Secondary Schools have been established for over 200 Internally Displaced Children brought from Borno State, the Kano State government affirms.

Mr Muhammad Sanusi-Kiru, the State Commissioner for Education, made this disclosure on Saturday in Kano.

He said that the government had initially established only primary and junior secondary school, but later expanded to senior secondary. Sanusi-Kiru said the decision to expand it was to ensure that the children, who are mostly orphans, did not stop at the junior level, but also obtained their senior secondary school certificate.

“We are doing everything possible to give them quality education and that they should also participate in building the country in future.

“Kano State government is not only sponsoring their secondary school education, but we are going to sponsor them up to higher institutions.’’

According to the commissioner, the gesture is in compliance with the recent declaration of free and compulsory primary to secondary school education in the state, noting that the number of enrolment has increased.

“Before, we had more than 1.2 million children in our primary schools, but with this development, our data shows that we have 1.9 million children in school,’’ he said.
