Send Your Children To School & Get Paid! Borno State Government tells Parents

Stories like this make one wonder why some people prefer illiteracy to literacy and have to be cajoled with money to
educate their children – though the present state of security in Borno is nothing to write home about.
Rather than
letting children roam about on the streets, the Borno state government is set to introduce a scheme whereby
parents would be paid for sending their children to school.
 Governor Kashim Shettima disclosed this on Sunday.
Shettima who blamed the Boko Haram insurgency for the poverty
and ignorance in the state, disclosed that the state government was also working on plans to reconstruct the 825
classrooms destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgents, to prepare grounds
for the commencement of academic programmes in the affected schools.
