Governor Nasir Idris of Kebbi State has been commended by the Emir of Argungu, Alhaji Samaila Muhammad Mera for his giant strides in coming up with laudable initiatives to further develop the educational sector in the State.

Mera particularly eulogised the Governor for the construction of a Mega school in his Emirate which according to him would go along way in addressing congestion in schools when fully completed and put to use.

The Emir made the commendation when the Commissioner of Information and Culture, Alhaji Yakubu Ahmed Birnin Kebbi paid him a courtesy visit at his Palace in Argungu.

The royal father who was reviewing the administration of Governor Nasir Idris in its first year in office, said the Government had performed well within a short period of time, noting that about 10 additional primary schools were constructed while junior secondary schools were expanded in his domain.

“Some of our schools that are old and densely populated now have junior secondary schools situated with them so that students do not have to travel far from their homes, which is one of the factors why girls do not go to school. You can’t give anybody anything better than education”, the monarch averred.

The Emir further stated that “As a person who deals with education at the grassroots, the Governor knows the roles the traditional institutions play in getting children registered in schools, making sure they are retained in schools besides supporting teachers to carry out their activities diligently”.

On the understanding between the governor and the traditional institutions in the state Mera said,”The traditional institution is the link to the grassroots. He is a resident activist before becoming the Governor. Working with us is a guarantee of reaching out to the lowest level of people in our communities.
