Taraba Announces Primary And Secondary School Education To Be Free The policy will be in place starting with the following academic year, according to Kefas, who stated while conducting an evaluation visit of elementary and secondary schools in Wukari, his hometown.
The action, according to the governor, will assist to mitigate the impacts of the elimination of the gasoline subsidy.
The governor also stated that in order to satisfy the needs of contemporary education, his government will immediately begin a significant refurbishment of the majority of the schools.
In Taraba, the governor had already proclaimed a state of emergency for elementary and secondary education.
To lessen the effects of the elimination of subsidies, he announced on Wednesday a 50% fee decrease at Taraba State University.
Let me inform you that starting with the following academic year, the state government will be paying all of your tuition costs, so you will all be able to attend school for free, Kefas added.
“We will continue to support you in receiving a high-quality education for the betterment of our state’s future.”
A zonal director of education named Daniel Nuhu praised Kefas for taking the time to personally evaluate the state’s public schools.
The free education and restoration of elementary and secondary schools, according to Nuhu, will enable the state’s less fortunate citizens turn their lives around and give them equitable access to high-quality education.
