The governor said his administration declared free primary and secondary education, as both levels of education remained compulsory for every child in the state.

“Government is going to pay WAEC and NECO examinations fees for our students, who are sitting for the examinations.

“I have directed the Commissioner for Education to meet with the coordinators of the examination bodies in the state for the modalities of registration and payment of the fees.

“Also, we have resumed fully for our boarding secondary schools feeding programme, ” Fintiri said.
