Governor Dauda Lawal has identified education as a fundamental tool for the development of Zamfara State.

On Wednesday, the governor was honoured with an award from pupils of Leadsprings International School at the Government House in Gusau.

A statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Bala Idris, said that the students presented the governor with seven critical expectations for the future.

According to the statement, the expectations for the future of Zamfara state include the capital city of Gusau, the health sector, Zamfara airline, technology, agriculture, the economic and commercial sector, and industries and companies.

While addressing the pupils, Governor Lawal reaffirmed his commitment and determination to revamp the education sector.

“Education is a top priority for my government, second only to security. However, our education system has not been performing well in the past. In particular, the state of Zamfara consistently ranked at the bottom of every education index. This is why I declared a state of emergency in education.

“These include recruiting qualified and competent teachers, providing necessary teaching materials and infrastructure, and introducing innovative teaching methods.

“My administration will spare no effort to transform the education sector to meet the state’s and its citizens’ needs.

Governor Lawal expressed appreciation for the quality of education demonstrated by the students and thanked the management of Leadsprings International School for presenting him with the honour award.

“I am impressed with the quality of your presentation and believe that Leadsprings International School students are well-prepared to compete anywhere in the world.

“Thank you for the honour. My government will encourage you in whatever way possible. I call on other private schools to emulate your good work.”

In his remarks, Leadsprings International Schools proprietor Mr. Danjuma Sule expressed the school’s desire to align with the educational initiatives of the Zamfara State government.

“We are impressed by your government’s commitment to ensuring a safe learning environment throughout the state. We are also pleased with your decision to promote education for girls. Currently, Leadsprings International Schools has 386 girls enrolled in different classes, and we are dedicated to nurturing them to become valuable contributors to the development of Zamfara.”
