Governor Idris Lauded Over Rwanda Training For SUBEB Officials

Permanent board member 1 of the Kebbi State Universal Basic Education Board (KBSUBEB) and coordinator of Kauran Abdullahin Gwandu (Danmalikin Dakingari), Alhaji Umar Maigandi Garima, has applauded Governor Nasir Idris for sponsoring 17 members of the board to a training in Rwanda.

The members and the permanent secretary of the Ministry for Basic Education benefitted from a five-day training on the sustainability of both girl-child education and Almajiri known as Tsangaya school under BESDA in Kigali, Rwanda.

Speaking with journalists in his residence in Badariya area in Birnin Kebbi metropolis, Garima said the training was to complement the efforts of the governor in tackling both girl-child education and Tsangaya school.

He added that the board under the chairman, Prof Khalid Jega, has selected four major Qur’anic schools in Yauri, Birnin Kebbi, Zuru and Argungu and recruited 2,889 facilitators to impart Western education to the pupils of the schools.

Garima said the government through SUBEB would spend about N 1 billion to modernise the pilot Tsangaya schools for the sustainability of the training programme under BESDA.

He said the board earmarked 40 schools from each of the 21 local government areas of the state for both the girl-child education and Almajiri education where pupils would be enrolled in the four selected pilot schools and be taught western education.
