Zamfara’s Performance In Education Poor- Gov

The Governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal, has lamented the poor state of the education sector in his state.

The governor made the disclosure during a visit to the Tertiary Education Trust Fund in Abuja.

In a statement released by the Fund on Saturday, Dauda was said to have solicited the help of TETFund to reposition the education sector in order to move the state forward.

He said, “As you are all aware, Zamfara is a small state facing the challenge of insecurity, most importantly in the area of education. If you check all the statistics, you will agree with me that Zamfara is not doing too well and therefore we need to be encouraged.

“It is a known fact that without education, we will not be able to achieve anything and we will continue to be backward.”

Responding, the TETFund boss, Sonny Echono, congratulated the governor on his victory in the March 18 governorship election.

While saying that TETFund was very delighted with the governor’s passion for human capital development, Echono said Zamfara is rich in resources, and expressed the need to harness the potential of the state for its educational development.

“The number one challenge institutions in Zamfara face over the years, especially in the last few years, is the issue of insecurity.

“We did make some plans for most of the institutions because this year under our intervention we made provision for security infrastructure,” he said.
