Kano state universal basic education board says the burden of educating children in the state is too much for the government to bear.
Chairman of the board Zakari Ibrahim Bagwai said this at the Kano state house of assembly while defending the proposed 2019 budget of the board.
Zakari Bagwai said the Kano state government operates more than 8,000 basic education schools catering to 4.4 million pupils in contrast to that Lagos state government which operates only 1,400 basic education schools.
He therefore urged wealthy persons to emulate Lagosians by establishing community schools and coming to the aid of public schools.
In his response, a member of the house committee on basic education, Salisu Ibrahim Riruwai said the house of assembly will increase the amount allocated to basic education in the 2019 budget due to its importance to societal development.
KANO TODAY reports that the state universal basic education board is prioritizing teacher training and building new classes in its budget proposal.
