In his remarks, Governor Tambuwal said his administration would continue to give priority to the education sector.
He said as part of government’s commitment to boost funding, education levy was introduced by the government, where civil servants and political office holders are taxed, to compliment other sources of funding.
“We have so far saved the sum of N260 million through the education levy. We hope to liaise with the state consultative committee on revitilization of education, headed by Sultan Muhammad Sa’ad, to continue our work in the education sector,” Tambuwal added.
The governor assured that all the recommendations of the committee would be implemented by the government.
While commending the members of the committee for a diligent job, Tambuwal said no investment in the education sector was too much to make.
He equally tasked commentators to always cross-check their facts before going public, adding that proper checks and balances had been put in place to ensure transparent handling of all public funds in the state.
