He reiterated his administration’s determination to improve the Education and Health sectors in the state.
“Those out-of-school children are our children; they.may not go to school maybe because of poverty if their parents cannot afford it.
“Today, we have built over 300 new schools in all the nooks and crannies of Bauchi state, and also renovated about 500 others.
“It shows that there is a new approach and to make sure that our children go to school,” he said.
