Sokoto to sustain non-discriminatory fees in schools – Tambuwal

Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto State Governor

Governor. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State on Sunday pledged to sustain the non-discriminatory policy on payment of school fees introduced by his predecessor, Aliyu Wamakko.

Mr. Tambuwal said this in Sokoto when he hosted the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Nicholas Okoh, who led members of the church on a Christmas courtesy visit.

He said: “As part of measures to boost communal harmony, my administration will sustain the policy of non-discriminatory fees paid by all students in public schools started by the last administration.”

The governor also invited all Nigerians willing to contribute to the development of education to come to the state and exhibit their talents.

He enjoined Christians to also sustain the centuries old peaceful and harmonious co-existence with their neighbours in the state.

Mr. Okoh earlier said that Nigeria can learn a lot from Sokoto’s peaceful disposition for rapid development of the country.

He said: “Even though there have been one or two issues with conflicts in Sokoto in the past, that has not affected the overall peaceful disposition of the state.”

The cleric commended the Sokoto Government for its efforts in promoting harmony among diverse religious and ethnic groups in the state.

While urging all Nigerians to take the issue of protection of environment seriously, Mr. Okoh said the dangers posed by desertification is real and should be accorded the attention it deserves.

    None of the Kanu supporters will see this and see the marginalisation in it, they only see the marginalisation that happened more than 40 years ago. the wont see that Bishop Kukah and this Okoh now reside in Sokoto, center of Northern Caliphate and their members enjoy the freedom and association like any other citizen in this country. Why cant we seek peacful resolution to things than looking for the best way to cause havoc and kill innocent people. This Biafra Noise MUST STOP.
