UNICEF Chief Field Officer, Maulid Warfa, who made the commendation during a Youth Talk Programme at the weekend in Kano, explained that the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration has taken a bold step on the education of young generation, which has taken a center stage of attraction.
Warfa, who lamented that Nigeria still has the world’s highest statistics of out of schools children called for immediate measures similar to Kano State’s policy on education to check the trend.
