Rabiu KwankwasoGov.  Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State on Tuesday inaugurated Kano-Borno Boarding Primary School for children orphanded by Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast.

Under the partnership, about 100 of such children are to be fully sponsored in the boarding primary school in the state.

Inaugurating the school, Kwankwaso said the project was a demonstration of the state government’s commitment to give a new lease of life to children orphaned by insurgency.

He said the children would be provided blankets, mattresses, pillows and free medical care.

“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 area”,  he said

Kwankwaso urged other state governors, individuals and corporate organisations in the country to help victims of the Boko Haram crisis.

In her remarks, the Borno Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Fanta Babab Shehu, thanked the state governor for the gesture.

“The gesture is timely because the state was critically hit by the five- year old insurgency in the area”, she said.

Shehu congratulated the children and charged them to make good use of the opportunity.

She also expressed the hope that the relationship existing between the two states would be sustained. (NAN)
