The Bauchi State Government has been urged to provide an enabling environment to promote digital learning to enable the girls realise their full potentials.
Aishatu Abdullahi, president of the Girl-Child in the state, made the call Monday at an event organised to mark the 2021 International Day of the Girl Child.

NAN reports that the event was organised by the United Nations Children’s Fund and the Bauchi State Universal Basic Education Board as part of activities to celebrate the day in the state.
Abdullahi, a student of the Government Day Secondary School, Sa’adu Zungur, Bauchi, said the call was imperative to reduce the number of out-of-school children in the state.
She also urged the state government to initiate a policy that would facilitate establishment of post basic school attached to every primary school across the state.
This, she said, would ensure continuity of learning and reduce the dropout rate in the state.
