Masari further revealed that the government would provide adequate instructional materials so as to enhance teaching and learning in the schools.

Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari

Gov. Aminu Masari made the disclosure on Monday when members of the APC from Funtua Senatorial Zone paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Katsina.

According to him, the state government would provide N1.5 billion while an additional N800 million would come from the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC).

He explained that about 2,000 primary schools would be rehabilitated and upgraded across the state with the funds.

‘’My administration is committed toward restoring the lost glory of education in the state.

‘’That is why education is one of the top priorities of my administration because of its importance to nation building,’’ he said.

Masari urged people of the state to continue to support his administration’s policies to promote the development of the entire state.

Earlier, the Chairman of the APC in Funtua Zone, Alhaji Bala Musawa, had expressed satisfaction with the leadership style of Masari.

‘’APC Funtua Zone is proud of Masari being the first person from the zone to become a governor of the state.

‘’The governor is making the zone proud through implementation of his programmes and policies.

‘’We know as a matter of fact that you have not derailed from both your campaign promises and the APC manifestos and you have recorded modest achievements,’’ he said.

The chairman also said that the party and all stakeholders from the zone were fully in support of the ongoing screening of local government staff.

Also speaking, a former deputy governor and Nigeria’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Alhaji Abdullahi Aminchi, said the state had witnessed remarkable improvement in the last one year.

Aminchi, however, urged the people of the state to exercise patience and support the governor while the administration was making efforts to move the state forward.
