 The funds should enable the schools buy instructional material and furniture.


The British Department for International Development, DFID, has disbursed more than N2 million to 40 nomadic schools in Jigawa State.

The Executive Secretary of Jigawa Agency for Nomadic Education, Ali Manu, said this in an interview in Dutse on Thursday.

Mr. Manu said the money was disbursed to the benefiting schools under the DFID Educational Sector Support Programme in Nigeria, ESSPIN. He said the gesture is to enable the schools to buy instructional materials and furniture as well as rehabilitate classrooms and water services.

Mr. Manu said 34 schools received N45 thousand each for school development projects.

The secretary said four other schools also got N75 thousand each, while Ulmi-Bakinjeji Nomadic Centre, and Habe School received N120 thousand and N90 thousand respectively.

Mr. Manu commended DFID for the gesture and urged the benefiting schools to ensure effective utilisation of funds.
