• The Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, has promised to declare free education from primary to tertiary level in the state, if the monthly statutory allocation of the state is increased.

    Gaidam made the pledge in Damaturu at a meeting with Yobe political stakeholders, who came to felicitate with him over his victory in the just-concluded polls.

    He said that the measure was part of efforts of his administration to ensure that Yobe indigenes acquired education, to enable them to realise their potential.

    The governor said that the policy would also enable indigenes of the state to acquire the relevant knowledge, skills and training needed to contribute in moving the country forward.

    He said that the people of the state would enjoy more dividends of democracy in his second term as “we will invest more in infrastructural and youth development.”

    Gaidam said that no society would achieve meaningful development without engaging its youth in socio-economic activities.

    The governor decried inadequate funding from the Federation Account, saying that it had been a major factor militating against the development of the state.

    He, however, expressed confidence that the APC-led Federal Government would accord priority to addresing the plight of the people, to enhance physical and manpower development in the state

    Gaidam said that his administration inherited poor infrastructure in the state from the precious leadership. (NAN)
