Borno State To Pay Parents If They Send Their Children To School

In a bid to improve the state’s level of education, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has announced that incentives shall be given to parents who enroll their kids in schools.

The move is aimed at encouraging enrollment and attendance at schools mostly in the northern parts of the country that have borne the biggest brunt of terror.

Borno Governor, Kashim Shettima, said the objective of the scheme was to ensure that parents sent their children to school rather than allow them roam the streets.

“This initiative is part of the government’s `Conditional Cash Transfer’ scheme for poor households,” Shettima disclosed this while interacting with some community elders in Maiduguri.

Shettima added that the state government was also working on plans to reconstruct the 825 classrooms destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgents, to prepare grounds for the commencement of academic programmes in the affected schools.

He blamed the Boko Haram insurgency for the poverty and ignorance in the state, adding that it disrupted the socio-economic activities in the state; and urged parents to send their children parents to school to safeguard their future.
