N178b For Kano Out-of-school Children. by Temitayo (f): 11:14pm on January 4

To adequately accomodate the over three million out-of-school children in Kano State, its government will need over N178 billion to construct befitting learning structures across the 44 local government councils. The Kano State University of Science and Technology (KUST) Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof Shehu Alhaji Musa, made this known in a programme organised by the Tudunwada Abota Cooperative Society Limited to honour seven of its kinsmen, who excelled in their various fields.

The honorees were: Garba Muhammad Pincer; Sunusi Saleh Suleiman; Alhaji Ibrahim Muhammed; Saidu Muhammad; Alhaji Usaini Baba; Dr Aminu Ahmad, who became professor of Chemistry in KUST and Baba Yusuf.

Musa lamented that government’s inability to fulfill the aforementioned has resulted into drugs abuse, political hooliganism, and other social malaise.

Prof Musa warned that abandoning education in the hands of government alone would never solve the educational imbalance confronting the state and the entire North.

“No amount of government’s intervention can entirely solve the problems of education in the North and Kano in particular, because the enormity of the problems is beyond government alone,” Prof Musa lamented.

He expressed worry that for the last 14 years, he has been campaigning among the well-to-do northerners to lend a helping hand to tertiary Institutions in the state by building more universities, adding that nobody yielded to his calls for reasons best known to them.

He added: “One can see clearly that in Kano for example, we have only four universities and every year millions of our children are eligible for university education, but we cannot accommodate them. What is the end result? Is it not having some of them becoming drug addicts, and others as political thugs? Only a few go to polytechnics”.

He, however, expressed regret that at a time Ogun State, for example, has close to 10 universities compared to Kano’s mega population, with over 15 million, having only four universities.

In his remarks, a retired Director of Currency, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Garba Ahmad, pointed out that those honored are expected to be good ambassadors and serve as inspiration to the younger generation.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
