The Speaker, Jigawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Idris Garba, in his humanitarian gesture has donated N1 million to 105 candidates to purchase scratch cards for registration of the 2016 November/December NECO examination.

In an interview with journalists on Monday, the local education committee chairman in his constituency, Alhaji Sani Sarki, made this disclosure.

According to Alh Sarki, 70 male and 30 female candidates from Jahun Local Government Area of the state which the speaker represents benefited from the donation.

Sarki said that the gesture which would enable the beneficiaries register for the examination was part of the speaker’s efforts to develop education at the grassroots.

He said it was also to ensure that the students were punctual at their schools for lessons and boost literacy level of youths in the area.

“Let me categorically say that education is the number one priority of the speaker and he will continue to ensure its development at all levels in the state,’’ he said.

Sarki, however, urged the beneficiaries to study hard and pass the examination in good grades and complement the investment made on them by the lawmaker.

He also advised parents to complement government and other philanthropists’ efforts by enrolling their children in schools.
