    Gov. Bello inaugurates distribution of free textbooks to students

    Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi inaugurated the distribution of 11,000 free textbooks to all high school students (SSS 2) in public schools across the state.

    The Nigerian News Agency reports that the free Chemistry and Physics textbooks were sponsored and donated by Alh. Ahmed Ododo, Kogi Auditor General for Local Government, in support of the State Government School Adoption and Mentoring Program.

    Speaking at the dedication at Abdulaziz Atta Memorial College, Okene, the governor praised the donor for the gesture of supporting education in the state.

    Bello, who was represented by Washington Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology Mr. Wemi Jones, said his Administration had made education a top priority, especially Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

    The governor emphasized that his commitment to renewing the education sector in the state required the allocation of 30 percent to education in the 2022 budget, even beyond the UNESCO benchmark of 26 percent.

    This, he said, has been reflected in the execution of massive educational infrastructure projects, as well as the continued hiring of qualified high school teachers throughout the state.

    Bello said that in addition to building school infrastructure, the government also pledged to equip schools with well-qualified teachers.

    He explained that the recruitment of teachers also reached the final stage after aptitude tests and oral interviews were concluded, saying that the final list was awaiting final approvals.

    He added that the state had enacted the education law, which authorized the ministry to sanction any person or group that tried to jeopardize the government's efforts to renew education in the state.

    He stressed that the state government had shown sufficient commitment, hence the need for individuals and organizations to support the government's efforts through its School Adoption and Mentoring Program.

    He praised the donor, Ododo, for donating the 11,000 Physics and Chemistry textbooks to the state's public schools, describing it as "the industry's biggest intervention so far."

    Furthermore, he revealed that another Kogi citizen had also promised to provide math textbooks for students.

    He urged all well-meaning political appointees, individuals and organizations to emulate them, the state's adoption program and school tutoring.

    However, he warned school principals and teachers against commercializing the textbooks, saying they were not for sale, but would be given to students free of charge.

    He stressed that the ministry had put mechanisms in place to monitor the distribution of textbooks, and warned that people who make mistakes would be punished.

    The governor advised students to justify the donor's use of the textbooks.

    reports that many dignitaries, royal parents, alumni of the school and relevant education stakeholders attended the occasion.

    Okene Local Government Chairman Mr. Abdulrasak Mohammad; the Ohi of Adavi, SAR Alh. Muhammad Bello, praised the donor for the gesture and the state for the initiative.

    Centre proposes establishment of mathematical sciences varsity

    Prof. Promise Mebine, the Executive, National Mathematical Centre (NMC), has called for the establishment of a National Mathematical Sciences University to aid the teaching and learning of mathematics related courses.

    Mebine made the call in a document made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.

    He said the university was necessary, considering the importance of mathematics and its applications in conjunction with the dearth of mathematicians in the Country.

    According to him, the University, when operational, will award certificates and degrees like Postgraduate Diploma, Masters and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees.

    He explained that this would be in the five programmes of the Centre namely; Mathematics, Computer Science, Theoretical Physics, Statistics and Mathematical Sciences Education.

    Mebine noted that measures were being taken to amend the Act of the National Mathematical Centre, adding that the proposal had been submitted to the Federal Ministry of Education to ensure realisation.

    While reiterating his drive to reposition the study of mathematics in the country, he said various training and workshops were organised by the centre to highlight the core values in the area of mathematics.

    He said the monthly seminars were conducted under Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as well as Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in line with the respective programmes of the Centre.

    “There is also the conduct of the National Olympiad examinations and subsequent participation of Nigeria in the various International Olympiads”.

    He listed the Olympiads to include the Pan African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO), International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO), International Physics Olympiad (IPHO), Others he mentioned were International Chemistry Olympiad (ICHO), International Biology Olympiad (IBO) and International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI).

    “It is also worthy to note that Nigeria won three medals, a gold medal and two bronzes in the 2022 International Olympiad Competitions among others”.

    Mebine further restated the Centre’s efforts geared towards achieving its core mandate and value.

    On development of resource materials, the director said that the need for quality resource materials in mathematical sciences could not be overemphasised.

    He said that the centre provided teaching modules from JSS 1 to JSS 3 and SSS 1 to SSS 3 including Digital Mathematics.

    “Also, textbooks on perceived difficult concepts in mathematics were provided,” he said.

    Mebine further said that the centre was collaborating with the state government and some parastatal agencies to drive its mandate.

    He said that the centre established and sustained collaboration with national and international bodies in areas of research, modeling and personnel development.

    Childhood experience prompted my GBV advocacy – Olofinyokun, SDGs Ambassador

    Precious Olofinyokun, a Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Ambassador and gender right advocate, has narrated how her childhood experience shaped her passion for advocacy against Gender Based Violence (GBV).

    She disclosed this on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

    She narrated how as a growing up child, she witnessed a man battering his wife and the man still demanded the wife to apologise to him, a development which she described as unfair to the woman because of her gender.

    She added that her subsequent engagement with her grandmother to seek answers to such a societal bias against the victim proved unsatisfactory.

    She said that particular event was a turning point in her life aspiration and why she chose to be voice for the voiceless women in the society.

    “While growing up, violence was a thing we grew up with; limiting the girl child or the woman.

    This allowed their gender to be a major determinant to them.

    “One of the major things that actually happened was when I witnessed a man battering his wife and after they asked the woman to apologise again to the man.

    “Then, I engaged my grandmother that it was not right,how can a man beat a woman and they still mandate the woman to apologise?

    “My grandmother said that’s the way it is, after that I started finding answers on my own by reading books and asking my teachers questions and I also realised that girls are marginalised in terms of education, these and more are the reasons why I’m so passionate about eradicating GBV.

    “When I got to SSS classes, I told my friends that I wanted to be voice for the women and girls when I grow up.

    “To the glory of God today, I am an advocate of gender rights especially favouring the girl child, young people, and women.

    “I am a social organiser and canvasser for sustainable development practices and currently a sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Ambassador.

    ” To cap it all, I am currently a postgraduate student with specialisation in Gender and Development Studies,” she said.

    Olofinyokun who presently works as Program Assistant and Gender Desk officer (Gender and vulnerable Person’s Unit)Funmilayo Adunni Olayinka Women center Fajuyi Ado Ekiti, is also member At Sexual Assualt Referral Centre (SARC) Ekiti, as a member of the Rapid Response Team. She listed her areas of focus to include girl child education, women empowerment and leadership training.

    Others, according to her are: advocacy and awareness on need to keep girls in school through provision of menstrual hygiene and provision of vocational trainings and start-up loans for women.

    She, however, described inadequate funding, lack of political will and inability to implement laws and policies around women as major challenges facing eradication of GBV in the country.

    Regardless of these challenges, Olofinyokun revealed that she had set a target for herself in her chosen path.

    “My target is to see more women and girls taking leadership positions and becoming who they want to become without any hindrance or barrier due to their gender.

    ” I want to see them fulfill their purposes and for me, I want to be among top Nigerian women championing voices of women in few years to come,” she said.

    World Bank project disburses N102.4m to 8,475 schoolgirls in Kaduna

    The Kaduna State Adolescent Girls Initiative for Learning and Empowerment (AGILE), a World Bank-supported project, on Thursday began disbursement of N102.4 million Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) to 8,475 schoolgirls in the state.

    At the disbursement ceremony in Kaduna, the Project Coordinator, Mrs Maryam Dangaji, said that the CCT intervention was an incentive to promote girl child school enrollment, retention, and completion.

    Dangaji said that the incentive was also to encourage parents and caregivers to ensure that the girls transit from one class to another.

    “The initiative is to support girls that were prevented from attending schools due to hawking and other commercial activities at home.

    “This is because available research shows that most girls stop their education at primary six while others manage to reach Junior Secondary School (JSS).

    “The essence of the CCT was to ensure that the girls transit from primary six to JSS I and from JSS I to Senior Secondary School (SSS) classes.

    “The target classes for the cash transfer are primary six, JSS I and SSS I,” she said.

    She said that the girls would receive N5,000 at the point of registration and every term the girls would receive N10,000 for JSS classes and N15,000 for SSS classes.

    She explained that schools in 15 out of the 23 Local Government Areas would benefit and were selected based on poverty ranking and low transition.

    She added that no fewer than 30,000 girls were expected to benefit from CCT in four cohorts within the life span of the project.

    The project coordinator said that the four cohort covers girls transitioning from primary six to secondary and girls transitioning from JSS 3 to SSS I.

    She said that the 8,475 girls comprising 4,944 JSS1 girls and 3,404 SSS1 girls would benefit from the first cohort CCT amounting to N102.4 million.

    She added that each of the 4,944 JSS I girls would receive 10,000, amounting to N49.4 million, while each of the 3,404 SSS I girls would receive N15,000 amounting to N52.9 million.

    Dangaji, however, said that the subsequent payment would be done on the condition that the girls achieve 70 to 80 per cent attendance in classes and do very well in their studies.

    “I am urging the parents and caregivers to use the money for which it was meant for and ensure their girls are enrolled in school, remain in school, learn and transit to the next class,” she said.

    The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Dr Haliru Soba, said that measure was part of efforts to promote girl child education in the quest for human capital development.

    Soba said that the CCT would ensure that children of the poor attend school regularly, learn, and transit to the next class up to senior secondary school and graduate.

    He also called on the parents to use the fund judiciously and ensure that their girl child did not drop out of school but complete secondary school education.

    One of the secondary school principals at the event, Mrs Austin Dukas, commended the World Bank for the initiative, describing it as “crucial” to the promotion of girl child education in the state.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the objective of the AGILE project is to help improve secondary education opportunities among girls in targeted communities.

    Father of slain Hanifa speaks, reveals how security agents nabbed killer schoolteacher

    by Mohamed Dahiru

    Abubakar Abdulsalam, the father of a 5-year-old girl, Hanifa, who was killed by her school teacher after collecting a ransom in Kano, revealed how security officers set a trap and arrested the murderous school teacher.

    He said the family cooperated with security officers to set him up and arrested him in a sparsely populated housing estate, popularly known as Kwankwasiyya City.

    Describing the situation as a test from Allah, Abdulsalam said that since her disappearance, the family has been praying hard to find her. “We found her Alhamdulillah, unfortunately we did not find her alive as we would have wanted, but dead. Allah knows best," she said through tears.

    Abdulsalam revealed how the culprit arrived at his home, posing as the owner of the Hanifa school, in tears, a day after his disappearance.

    “This is your third term at the school. She was initially going to an Islamic school when we decided to enroll her in Noble Kids School because it was in the neighborhood, close and accessible. We never imagined this terrible result.

    “After kidnapping her on December 4, 2021, we had no contact from him until about 8-9 days later, when he sent a text message. I came back from dawn prayers around 7 am and found a nylon bag at the entrance. Opening it, I found her sweatshirt inside, the badge on her hijab, and a picture of her. About an hour later, he texted to ask if we had seen proof of the fact that she was in his custody, we affirmed but begged to be allowed to speak to her to confirm that she is alive. Instead, he chose to show us other evidence, so he directed us to the Kwankwasiya estate along the Zaria road.

    “He asked us to count 21 streetlights on the left and look in the drain, we will find evidence. After a frantic search, I found the nylon and when I opened it, it was her hijab without a badge that was inside. We confirmed but still begged him to listen to our daughter's voice. He hung up the call and demanded a ransom from N6m. He threatened to kill her if we did not comply,” Mr. Abdulsalam recounted.

    He said that after collecting some cash, the kidnapper told them to drop him off at the same spot on the Kwankwasiya estate where he had told them earlier.

    “So we complied, but not without informing the security agents. The security agents instructed us to comply so that they would follow him. Unfortunately, by the time security agents arrived, he had already taken the money and left.

    “That night, no more than 20 minutes later, she called furiously ranting that the ransom money was incomplete and that we had to complete it, otherwise he would kill her. So when I reported back to security, they instructed us to comply, assuring them that this time they would catch him. Unfortunately for him, he didn't change the location to collect the ransom, so we went and left him. As he came out of hiding and was about to pick it up, security officers pounced on him,” Abdulsalam said.

    He said that the State Security Service, SSS, had given them guarantees that justice would prevail over the horrific murder of his daughter.

    Christian youths protest Kukah’s invitation by SSS, say Gumi too must be invited

    Some young Christians under the auspices of the Nigerian Christian Association, Youth Wing, YOWICAN, condemned on Sunday the invitation of the Catholic bishop of the diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, by the State Security Service, SSS.

    DAILY NIGERIAN learned that Kukah was invited by the SSS for his comments on the state of the nation in which he criticized President Muhammadu Buhari.

    In reaction, YOWICAN President Belusochukwu Enwere in a statement Sunday stressed that the Service should also invite popular Islamic cleric Ahmad Gumi for questioning for "fraternizing with bandits."

    The statement read: “YOWICAN's attention has been drawn to the alleged invitation extended to Bishop Hassan Kukah, Bishop of the Diocese of Sokoto. Bishop Kukah did not commit any offense; rather, the government should channel its energy into the fight to rid the country of terrorists and bandits.

    “Recently, more than 200 people died in the state of Zamfara and the villagers were displaced. This is really disheartening. We will mobilize all Christian youth across the country to honor this invitation.

    “DSS has extended its invitation to us, not Bishop Kukah, and we will honor it. The DSS should first invite Ahmad Gumi for questioning for interacting with bandits.

    "The controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, has advised people in the terrified north-west of Nigeria on how they can live in peace with the armed bandits occupying their forests," they said.

    YOWICAN quoted Mr. Gumi as saying that the people could develop "a mutual relationship with the bandits without being harmed."

    According to Mr. Enwere, Gumi has been "fraternizing with bandits and working freely without any invitation from DSS or the police."

    He said: “The DSS has invited Bishop Matthew Kukah for questioning, days after the prominent Catholic priest intensified his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to curb insecurity across the country.

    "Bishop Kukah criticized President Buhari in his Christmas sermon, saying that the Nigerian leader has failed to show his competence as terrorists, bandits and other violent criminals embark on a coordinated and relentless rampage across the country."
