Niger Governor Wants Incoming Administration To Focus On Education





The Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu has urged the incoming administration to accord priority to the education sector.
He made the plea on Thursday when a delegation from the National University Commission (NUC) visited him in Minna after inspecting the state-owned University of Education which would kick off soon.
Aliyu said that the direct impact of education would translate into the much needed development and empowerment in the state and the region as a whole.
He said that the two state universities would continue to serve residents of Niger and its environs, adding that the NUC should expedite action on the accreditation of the education university.

Also speaking, Dr Bello Kumo, NUC Deputy Director in charge ‎of Accreditation, said the commission would ensure that facilities in the new institution meet standards in terms of human and material resources.
Prof. Farku Haruna, the Vice Chancellor of the university, said the driving force for the establishment of the institution was the present administration’s vision of making the state one of the top three in the country. (NAN)
