The governor advised that education should be made free from basic to secondary levels in the interest of the Nigerian child.

“As a government, we have said that basic education and secondary education will be free; we have also made it compulsory to ensure sustainability.

“We have also resolved to hold a stakeholders’ summit to this effect; the summit will brainstorm on how to take care of out-of-school children which include Almajiri,” he said.

Ganduje said the state’s plan was to modify the curriculum in such a way that would tally with the national curriculum.(NAN)
