Kebbi Govt To Construct 40 Nomadic Schools



The Kebbi State government said it would construct 40 new nomadic schools across the 21 local government areas of the state. Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu gave the assurance in Birnin Kebbi while interacting with Fulani leaders from the 21 local government areas of the state under the aegis of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association. The governor also promised to construct new mosques in all the Fulani hamlets. He said the meeting with the Fulani leaders was necessary in order to thank them for the peaceful coexistence in their areas and to inform them about the developmental strides of his government in their settlements.

Bagudu said it was important for the Fulani leaders to be part of discussion on how to provide basic amenities to their areas so as to have sense of ownership of the projects. The governor announced that the construction of the new nomadic schools would start before the end of November this year. He also told the Fulani leaders that out of the N1.5billion loans the state government accessed, it has set aside N900million to boost livestock farming and N600million to promote fish farming in the state. Bagudu thanked the Fulani leaders in the state for maintaining peace with the farmers.
