“This library is part of Project Educate All. Our mandate in the agency is the provision of durable solutions for all persons of concern, whenever disaster affects education.

Project Educate All

“So, Project Educate All is tailored to improve access to learning, especially for people that are experiencing all sorts of displacements.

“It is working in terms of strengthening schools in communities where IDPs are, offering scholarship, tuition fees, payment of NECO and WAEC fees, and construction of libraries.


According to her, library is the starting point of learning as it helps students to discover themselves and actualise their dreams.

“This is the third library, we are still in piloting phase, we intend to work with other state governments to ensure that we replicate this across board.

“We are very ambitious, we will build many libraries as much as we can across the nation,” the commissioner added.
