As part of his empowerment project in Katsina, the state governor, Aminu Masari has reportedly given out goats to female secondary school students.
Commissioning the project on Saturday, November 11, at Government Girls Arabic Secondary School, Dutsinma, the state’s commissioner for Education Professor Halimatu Idris said the program is aimed at empowering students to be self-reliant.
The commissioner further said that the empowerment program is part of the government’s effort toward improving people’s lives and development of education in the state.
Idris also said that 20 Secondary Schools were selected from the state’s three senatorial zones for the take-off of the programme.
An anonymous citizen of Katsina state who commented about the empowerment program said the goats were given out to only female students in secondary schools to rear for a year.
He added that the students are expected to return the mother goats to the government and have the kids for themselves.
Attention has been shifted lately to the state of education in the Northern part of the country as the Governor of Kadunat State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai sacked almost 22,000 teachers for failing competency test.
