Kebbi Secures World Bank Grant For Girl Child Education

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Gov. Atiku Bagudu says his administration has secured a 70 million dollars World Bank Grant to strengthen Adolescent Girl-Child Education.

Bagudu disclosed this at the 5th Kebbi State Women Ramadan Lecture Series held in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital on Saturday.

Bagudu said with the grant, women in the state, especially adolescent girls would be taught more skills, coupled with both formal and non-formal education.

The governor also stated that such skills would enable the girls to be more productive and self-reliant, even in their matrimonial homes.

Bagudu said: “The good news is that, the more we invest in women, the more prosperous our society will be.

“The grant will complement the various programmes and policies aimed at making life better for the girl-child, women and other vulnerable groups in the state.”

Bagudu stressed the need to legislate and appropriate more money for Girl-Child Education and other related welfare schemes.

The governor noted that women must be supported to play their societal roles, just as it has been ordained by the Almighty Allah.

He observed that women play key roles in the routine running of the society, apart from their respective family responsibilities.

“If we religiously heed to the various Islamic injunctions as regards our entire lives and family bonds, we will live in a more healthier, safe and peaceful society.

“Our various families, diligently anchored by our wives, mothers and daughters will be able to surmount all the formidable challenges and survive any economic turbulence,” he added.

Bagudu commended the convener of the lectures and First Lady, Dr Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu and the other active collaborators for making the event a huge success.
