Also speaking at the occasion Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe state, who was the special guest of honour reiterated his administration readiness to support and also provide the enabling environment for private institutions in the state.
The Governor who was represented by the Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Alhaji Shehu Abubakar Durbi, said the education sector was a sensitive one as it was responsible for building future leaders and thus should not be neglected.
He said his administration would encourage private school owners who have invested and are still investing in quality schools to enable them succeed in the task of building the future generation.
While describing education as the pillar point for societal development, he said government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility of providing education to the people, hence the need for private participation.
