The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) gubernatorial candidate for 2023 election in Kano, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, has pledged to fix the deplorable state of public schools to befitting standards that guarantee good quality education the masses crave, if elected the State Governor.

Engr. Abba, who made the pledge on Sunday during a radio chat at Rahma Radio Kano, expressed worry over deteriorating condition of schools in Kano, following the current administration’s failure to fund education that is a fundamental right of every citizen.

He said that capacity of the existing primary and secondary schools in the State has been overstreched by high population of students, deteriorating facilities, lack of competent teachers and poor motivation of pupils and teachers which result to near collapse of basic educational sector.

The NNPP gubernatorial candidate said reviving educational sector in Kano, is a strategic plan that lies in the nucleus of the NNPP blueprint with the scope covering provision of modern facilities, free meals, school uniform, learning materials and school fees at primary and secondary levels.

A statement signed on Monday by the Chief Spokesperson of the NNPP Campaign Council, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, quoted the gubernatorial candidate as pledging that the state government under his watch will restore the past glory of outstanding performance by the public secondary schools in the Senior School Certificate Examination, saying WAEC and NECO fees will be bore by the government if elected the governor.

Engr. Abba said teachers in the public schools will be motivated by prompt payment of complete salaries, training and retraining to meet modern standards for imparting good quality education that will have positive impact on the State.

He said: “A Kano state government under the leadership of Engr. Abba and Kwankwasiya vision will be committed to awarding scholarships for tertiary education and terminal degrees in foreign countries to Kano students irrespective of social and economic influences of their parents.”
