Boko Haram: UNICEF, Adamawa begin school enrolment campaign
The Adamawa State Government in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund, on Saturday, inaugurated a campaign aimed at encouraging parents to enrol their children and wards in school.
The campaign has been code-named Enrolment Drive/Back to School Campaign.
Speaking at the inauguration in Yola, the Speaker, Adamawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Kabiru Mijinyawa, said the state’s legislature would continue to give priority to education.
Mijinyawa said the legislative arm of government in the state had already approved the state’s counterpart fund for UNICEF interventions.
He, therefore, expressed surprise that approval was yet to be effected by the executive arm.
He assured UNICEF of the legislature’s commitment to work for the smooth implementation of its interventions, particularly in the area of education.
The speaker said lawmakers in the state had already inaugurated the enrolment campaign in their respective constituencies.
