Over 4.7 million Kano pupils sit on the floor to learn – Governor Abba Yusuf

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has raised an alarm over an alleged neglect of the education sector by the immediate past administration in Kano State. 


Declaring a State of Emergency in Education in Kano on Thursday, June 13, Yusuf said the past administration sold some public schools and converted others to private shops.


He further revealed that over 4.7 million Kano pupils sit on the floor to learn. 


The Governor said; 


”My administration is committed to making education a top priority and a lasting legacy for future generations. Over 4.7 million pupils are forced to sit on bare floors to learn, while 400 schools have only one teacher for all classes and subjects. 

“Teachers struggle with outdated and insufficient basic learning equipment, while clean water and sanitation are lacking in many schools.”
