This followed the adoption of a motion by Aminu Sa’ad, APC-Ungoggo, at plenary presided over by Speaker Abdulazeez Garba-Gafasa.

Mr Sa’ad said that there were few schools in the area, which could no longer accommodate increasing number of children.

“The existing schools in the areas are not enough. Therefore, there is the need for establishment of more schools so that more children can be enrolled.
