The Zamfara State Government has stated that it is ready to deploy security officers to schools in the state to ensure that children and instructors are adequately protected.
Governor Matawalle stated his administration was obliged to close all of the state’s institutions owing to insecurity, but that he would soon restore the schools.
He revealed this while receiving a courtesy visit from some kids at the Government House in Gusau, the state capital, as part of festivities commemorating the International Day of the Girl Child.
Zainab Bello fulfilled one of the Governor’s duties by appointing Hon. Fa’ika Ahmed as a Commissioner-designate to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development.
Bello promised that as part of her development program for the state, she would protect the rights of girls and promote their education.
The Governor, on the other hand, guaranteed that his administration will pay its counterpart funding for the Universal Basic Education (UBEC) program in 2021 and would continue to improve the standard of education in Zamfara State, particularly for girls.
The importance of the International Day of the Girl Child, according to Maryam Na’inna, Chairperson of the High-Level Women Advocates (HLWA), cannot be overstated.
Two former deputy governors of the state, Hon. Mukhtar Anka and Mallam Ibrahim Wakala Liman, as well as the Chief of Staff, Commissioners-in-waiting, and other relevant stakeholders, attended the event.
