‘N17bn Budget Allocation To Service Emergency Rule On Education – Al-Makura’s Aide

Governor Umaru Tanko Almakura of Nasarawa State has said that the education sector got highest budgetary allocation of N17.05 billion in the 2016 budget proposal in order to salvage it from the state of emergency it has been placed under due to structural decay and infrastructural inadequacy.

Governor Almakura, who spoke through his media aide, Ahmed Tukur, shortly after inspecting ongoing projects in some selected schools in the state, noted that government was committed to ensuring that every child of school age was enrolled into school and provided the basic education free of charge in the most conducive learning environment.

He said all ongoing projects, especially those in the proposed model Premier Comprehensive Colleges, would be completed in due course, adding that similar efforts has led to meteoric rise in school enrolment especially among the underprivileged.

The governor noted further that that massive construction of schools across and establishment of new ones in communities which hitherto had none has also bolstered school enrolment which has direct bearing on literacy level in the state.

He said that the 2016 budget was tailored towards servicing policies and programmes that would give youths, women and the physically challenged the enabling environment to realise their potentials.
