Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples party, Mr. Rabi’u Musa- Kwankwanso, have promised to ensure free and compulsory education from Primary to Secondary school levels in Nigeria if voted into power in 2023.
Kwankwaso stated this on Thursday during the NNPP Campaign Flag-off in keffi, Nasarawa state saying that the government under him would pay registration for West African Examination Council, National Examination Council (NECO) and Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Examination to all students in the country.
“I will readable the number of security personnel in the country so as to tackle criminal elements,” he added.
He further urged Nasarawans to vote massively for the governorship candidate, Maidoya to become victorious in the 2023 general election.
Speaking to his mammoth supporters, Alh Abdullahi Maidoya, Nasarawa State Governorship candidate of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) promised to complement what the presidential candidate had promised adding that Nasarawa people will no longer pay money to go to School noting that his administration would offer free and compulsory education if he is elected in 2023.
The NNPP governorship candidate said the decision was to build the capacity of the youths thereby reducing restiveness and idleness.
He added that no state can develop beyond the level of its education, as such it would be made free and compulsory to make sure that people have no reason not to go to school.
He also promised to give priority to security in all the parts of the state in order to tackle insecurity such as kidnapping that is currently rampart.
He added that Nasarawa State is an agrarian state, therefore, ‘My government would secure communities to enable farmers to go to farms without the fear of being attack’.
On his part, Barr. Innocent Lagi, Director General of the governorship campaign, said they would do things differently if the party is elected in 2023.
Lagi added that NNPP knows that power is a trust from the people and the party intend to keep the trust.
