Hajiya Fatima Madugu, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Minna.

``Niger State will be partnering with the Cambridge University in Britain to transform the state’s education sector, so as to enable us to be where we want to be.

``The first phase will involve a baseline survey, where the number of pupils and teachers as well as number of schools in the state will be captured, in order to know their needs in those schools and address them.

``The second stage has to do with training and retraining of teachers so that they will be able to use modern teaching technologies in teaching our pupils and students.

``Last but not the least is the collaboration with donor agencies for the success of this noble project; let me also add that this partnership will run for three years,” she said.

Meanwhile, Assemblyman Kassim Alfa, the Chairman of Niger State House of Assembly’s Committee on Education, Science and Technology, has pledged the committee’s support for efforts to revamp the education sector.

He said that members of the committee strongly believed in education as the greatest tool for addressing the myriad social and economic challenges facing the society.
