The Adamawa State government has prioritised the education of the girl child and is taking steps to ensure that girls are confident and safe to transit to tertiary level education.

The Commissioner for Education, Dr. Umar Garba Pella disclosed this during the annual unity get-together tagged “Ngalbi 2023” held at the Ngalbi Primary School in Hong Local Government Area of the state, which was geared towards uniting Hoba Development Association and bringing a peaceful coexistence among them.

He said the government’s vision is to implement policies that will transform the education sector, improve school systems, access, retention, and particularly, the transition of the girl child from secondary school to tertiary institution.

Pella expressed concern that the girl child is at risk during the transition from secondary school to tertiary institution and noted that the government has developed a robust plan to ensure that girls are confident and safe to make this transition.

“The government has set a target to improve school infrastructure in the state, with the ultimate aim of ensuring that no child is without a desk, classroom, teacher, and instructional materials. The state government’s investment in the social sector has paid off, with Adamawa State moving from being among the last five performing states in the country to being among the top five. During the last release of NECO results, the state emerged as the second-best performing state in the country and the first in Northern Nigeria.”
