Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto North) has donated N1.4 million to the Yushau Abdullahi Nizzamiya Islamiya School in Arkilla area of Sokoto to aid its operations.
A statement on Sunday by the senator’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Alhaji Bashir Mani, stated that 80 graduating students of the school got N400,000 of the donation.
He added that N1 million was donated to the school to boost its operational and logistics needs.
Mani said the senator, who is also the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Basic and Secondary Education, urged wealthy Nigerians to complement the efforts of government in funding education at all levels.
”There should be more investments in education and more private schools should be established.
”I am therefore commending the proprietor of the school for establishing it and sustaining it’s funding.”
He said that Wamakko called on other wealthy individuals to emulate the proprietor of the school, Alhaji Yushau Abdullahi, in the bid to restore the glory of the education sector.
