The Hadejia Local Education Authority (LEA) on Friday said it had disbursed N5.4 million in loans to teachers and non-teaching staff in the area.
Its Education Secretary, Alhaji Haruna Buba, disclosed this after a meeting of the education management of the council in Hadejia, Jigawa State.
Babu said that the loans were provided to about 50 teachers and other members of staff to enable them buy cars and motorcycles.
He said that the gesture was aimed at improving the welfare of teachers and motivating them to improved performances.
The secretary urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the loans.
Buba urged parents to comply with the Jan. 6 school resumption date and ensure that their wards returned to schools on that date.
He commended the Jigawa State government on the schools’ rehabilitation and teacher development projects going on in the state. (NAN)
