Ganduje, Kano State Governor, on Saturday, declared free and compulsory education for almajiris and vowed that his administration would ensure that every child in Kano had unhindered access to qualitative education.
Ganduje also reiterated his commitment to ensuring that almajiris in the state benefited from his free and compulsory basic and secondary education policy, despite the reality that most of them were children from neighboring states.
He described the status of Kano being the state with the highest number of out-of-school children in the country, as a challenge that must be faced and defeated.
