The Etsu Nupe and Chairman of the Niger State Council of Traditional Rulers, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, has called on parents to prioritise girl child education, warning that relegating them to the background would not augur well for society.

The Etsu Nupe also called on the government at all levels and corporate organisations to invest in reviving the education sector, saying that it was the surest and quickest way towards attaining rapid development.

Alhaji Yahaya made the call at the commissioning of four blocks of classrooms, offices and toilets worth N27m donated by the Sunti Sugar Company to St Mathias’ Anglican School in Kusogi community in Mokwa LGA of Niger State.

The traditional ruler also stressed the importance of investing in vocational education to enable girls and boys to learn skills to de-emphasise the search for white collar jobs after graduating from school.

The Etsu Nupe, who was represented by the Ndacheko Nupe, Alhaji Baiwa Mohammed, commended the Sunti Sugar Company for the gesture and called on other corporate organisations in the state to assist in saving education in rural communities from total collapse.

Earlier, the General Manager (GM) of Sunti Sugar Company, Mr Anlo Du Pisani, said the project was part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of the company towards developing the immediate community, as well as building mutual co-existence between the firm and the community.
