A member of the Kano State House of Assembly, Labaran Madari, Warawa-APC, has recruited 105 temporary teachers to boost education in his constituency.
Mr Madari presented appointment letters to the newly recruited teachers on Wednesday in Warawa.
He said that the gesture was to shore up the number of teachers and reduce unemployment in the community.
The lawmaker, who is also the Majority Leader commended Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for the introduction of free and compulsory education in the state.
Mr Madari added that there was the urgent need to contribute his quota to the success of the policy.
The Assemblyman said that he was part of the team that championed the introduction of free and compulsory education by Ganduje.
Mr Madari said that he had constructed 35 blocks of classrooms and 11 toilets in primary, secondary and Islamiyya schools.
The majority leader further added he provided learning and instructional materials, as well as completion of girls secondary school, Warawa, among others.
“I want to assure you of my commitment to protect your interest in the assembly towards providing the dividend of democracy,” he explained.
Mr Madari said that allowances will be paid to the teachers every month and follow-up would be done to ensure they were absorbed by the state government as permanent and pensionable teachers.
The commissioner of Education, Ya’u Yan’shana, who described the program as timely, commended the lawmaker for the gesture.
