Governor Empowers Students With A Goat Each.

Katsina state Governor has empowered students in the state through a special program targeted at eradicating poverty and enshrining self reliance. The program is geared towards ensuring each student has a goat to rear.

The beneficiaries of the goats lined up with their goats at Government Girls Arabic Secondary school, Dutsinma on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
The Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari, has launched a programmed to empower secondary school students with goats in the state.

Speaking during the inauguration, the state commissioner for Education, Halimatu Idris while representing the Governor, said the programme was aimed at empowering students to be self-reliant.

Mrs Idris, a professor, said the goat empowerment programme was part of the Masari administration’s efforts toward improving the lives of the people and development of education in the state.

She said the state government had selected 20 secondary schools in each of the three senatorial zones for the take-off of the programme.

She also clarify that in August last year, the state government said it purchased 4,500 goats as against 720 reported.
