“I urge parents to make the best use of the educational facilities built here by ensuring their children attend school”, said the Governor when he inaugurated the UNICEF supported Gangura Primary School in Gangura payam on Wednesday.
He at the same time encouraged parents to join adult literacy classes, saying by so doing they will act as role models for their children.
The Governor at the same time urged the community to cooperate with security personnel in the payam, saying it is only in a secure environment where constructive learning can take place.
He commended UNICEF for its continued support of the education sector in the state.
UNICEF Country Director Jonathan Veitch discouraged the marriage of girls at early age and instead advised parents to take their girl children to school.
He thanked the parents for their support towards the development of educational infrastructure in the area, including provision of a conducive environment.
