borno..-406x275The governments of Borno and Kano states have agreed to sponsor about 100 children orphaned by the activities of Boko Haram through school.

The scheme will see the children attending various primary schools in Kano State.

The sponsorship arrangement was made known on Monday by the Borno State Head of Service, Mr. Yakubu Bukar, who represented Governor Kashim Shettima at a send-off ceremony for the pupils.

The Borno HoS, at the ceremony which preceded the departure of the children to Kano, congratulated them on being selected by the government for sponsorship through primary school up to the tertiary education level.

He said this opportunity came as a result of the scholarship offered to the orphans by the Kano State Government in collaboration with the Borno State Government.

“I hope the gesture will greatly reduce the burden on Borno State in taking care of all the children, who have been orphaned as a result of the crisis in the state. I also express the hope that the relationship existing between the two states will be sustained”, he said.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajia Fanta Shehu, described the gesture as timely, saying the sponsored orphans were carefully selected from some local governments that were worse hit by the insurgency.

The commissioner added that Governor Shettima, his counterpart in Kano, Musa Kwankwaso, and five others, who she did not mention, would serve as guardians to the orphans.
