Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has attributed the delay in the admission of students to the new mega secondary in the Gudu local government area to insecurity.
He disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in Sokoto.
It could be recalled that the present administration had 2016 embarked on the school project in Balle, headquarters of Gudu, as it was the only local government area in Nigeria without a secondary school.
“The Gudu Mega school is one project that is very dear to my heart, but unfortunately, the insecurity denied us access to the facility,” he said.
“It is my wish that before I leave office, we should admit students into that college. However, for whatever reason, if the situation does not abate, I don’t see myself taking anybody’s child to the place. I am sure the incoming administration will do the needful if and when the situation improves.”
Speaking on other projects by his government, he stated,” since the commencement of those projects, none of them has ever been abandoned for a single day.”
The governor assured the state to ensure the completion of the projects before the expiration of his tenure.
