In a bold move to address the challenges facing the education sector in Kano State, the state government has employed 5,000 teachers to work in the state civil service. This initiative is aimed at providing the required manpower for public schools in the state to deliver quality education.

Governor Abba Yusuf made this announcement while declaring a state of emergency on education on Saturday in Kano. He emphasized the need for quality personnel to manage public schools in the state and stressed that the era of pupils receiving lectures under harsh conditions is over.

Yusuf pledged to ensure a total rehabilitation and provision of furniture for public schools in the state, stating that the declaration of a state of emergency in education is a crucial step towards addressing the challenges facing the sector.

He also highlighted the government's commitment to providing basic learning materials and infrastructure, which will significantly improve the quality of education in the state.

The governor used the opportunity to paint a stark picture of the crisis facing the state's education sector, revealing that over 4.7 million pupils are forced to sit on bare floors to learn, while 400 schools have only one teacher for all classes and subjects.

He also accused the immediate past administration of closing down schools and converting vandalised ones into commercial premises.

Yusuf promised to tackle the multi-faceted problems facing public education in the state head-on, including the shortage of qualified teachers, inadequate training programmes, and socio-economic challenges faced by students.

He emphasized that it is time for investment in public education and a commitment to providing a quality learning environment for all.
