Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State has launched the community engagement programme of the Better Education Service Delivery For All (BESDA) at Malam Sidi,  Kwami Local Government Area.

The governor’s spokesman, Ismaila Uba Misilli, in a statement yesterday, said

his boss expressed dismay over the staggering statistics of out- of -school children in the state.

The governor declared that he would not compromise education despite the  financial status of the state and competing demands in virtually all sectors.

According to him, “If you compromise education, the future is at stake. No investment can be too high on education. Our experience with Boko haram and other security threats in recent years are classical examples of the price we have to pay for our nonchalant attitude towards education”.

He urged  parents, religious leaders and other stakeholders to wake up to the realities and encourage education for all in the overall interest of the state and for posterity.
