Sokoto gives NAOWA N10m for schools

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has donated N10 million to the Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association (NAOWA) to establish new nursery and primary school at Giginya Barracks, Sokoto.

Tambuwal, who made the donation when he received NAOWA executive members in his office, praised them for their concern to education development in their host community.

He said the people of the state have a longstanding and mutually-beneficial relationship with the military, noting that his administration would continue to appreciate all security agencies for their sacrifices to the nation.

“You have made a request of N25 million, N5 million to establish a creche, nursery and primary school in Giginya Barracks. The government will donate N10 million and I will lead efforts to mobilise other people to bring in their donations for this laudable project.

“We will also continue to partner with you to improve the standard of living of our citizens,” Tambuwal added.

Earlier, NAOWA’s Zonal Coordinator for Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi states, Mrs Elice Nwosu, said the association has been involved in provisions of social services targeted at women, youths children and other vulnerable members of the society.

“We are working with the vision of our National President, Mrs. Ummah Buratai, to provide quality education, healthcare services and vocational skills to as many people as possible,” Mrs Nwosu said.

“In Sokoto, we plan to establish a creche, nursery and primary school and to renovate and re-open the NAOWA vocational skills acquisition centre for our members and members of our host community,” she added.
