During the announcement, Governor Yusuf emphasized the significance of education as a public good and the cornerstone of a prosperous future. Recognizing the alarming number of out-of-school children in the state, which currently stands at 989,234, he acknowledged the urgent need to safeguard their right to education.

The dilapidated state of schools was also highlighted, with crumbling infrastructure and inadequate resources hindering the learning process.

To address these challenges, Governor Yusuf has declared a State of Emergency in the education sector. This extraordinary measure grants the government the authority to implement radical yet practical solutions to revitalize the education system.

Additionally, all public boarding schools previously closed by the previous administration will be reopened, allowing students to resume their education in a conducive environment.

The governor’s commitment to tackling these issues head-on demonstrates his determination to provide quality education to the children of Kano State.

By prioritizing education and taking decisive action, Governor Yusuf is paving the way for a brighter and more prosperous future for the state and its young generation.
