Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna state Monday commissioned one of the 62 newly completed secondary schools in the state, while disclosing his plan to build 50 more to provide easy access to education facilities for children in the state.

Speaking while commissioning Government Secondary Schools, Rigachikun, Igabi local government, Governor Sani said the decision of his administration to embark on massive educational infrastructure projects was informed by the need to address one of the leading hindrances to education, noting that education is the best investment against poverty and insecurity.

He said the new schools are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, innovative learning spaces, and safety features to enable the children focus on acquiring knowledge and developing their full potential.

Gov Sani said: “When I performed the groundbreaking for the construction of this school on 31st August, 2023, I made a commitment that it would be speedily completed. We have matched our words with action, to the glory of Almighty Allah. This milestone marks a significant step in our efforts at providing accessible, safe and conducive learning spaces. Children who learn in conducive environments are confident, relate well with others and are more creative and innovative.   

“Our administration has prioritised education because it is the best investment against poverty and insecurity. When you give a person education, you have empowered him or her for life. You have given the person an opportunity to realise his or her potentials. An educated person cannot be easily manipulated by forces of evil or conflict merchants. An educated girl or woman is a huge asset to society.”
