Why education has been my top priority – Abaji chairman

Abaji chairman

The chairman of Abaji Area Council, Alhaji Abdulrahman Ajiya, has said his administration accords education greater priority because it is the bedrock of development and which gives the youth a chance to develop.
Ajiya spoke after he was conferred with an award of excellence by the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria chapter of the National Association of Abuja Students Union (NAASU) in his office yesterday.
He said it was on that premise that immediately he assumed office, he embarked on a tour of all schools across the 10 wards of the council and assisted in providing them instructional materials.
He said the council, under his administration, had also achieved a lot by establishing a secondary school and paying scholarships of indigent students at various tertiary institutions across the council.
He also said he had taken steps to address the issue of girl – child education, which he said, had already started giving positive results.
The president of the ABU Zaria chapter of NAASU, Comrade Alfa Isah Ibrahim, said the students union was inspired to confer the award of excellence on the chairman because of his sterling performance, especially in the education sector.
