Tambuwal said for Nigeria to be among the great nations of the world, Nigerians to rededicate themselves to the building of a better country.
Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has urged Nigerians to rededicate themselves to the building of a better Nigeria that would be the envy of many other nations.
He noted that for Nigeria to be among the great nations of the world, there must be more investment made towards education so that a brighter future can be secured for Nigerian children.
Tambuwal stated this in a statement issued in Sokoto on Saturday, September 30, by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam.
He said: "They are investments that will bring the best out of the next generation of Nigerians and enable us to reach our potential as individuals, as communities, as a nation.
"We must continue to put the right policies in place and ensure diligent implementation of such policies. This is important because our children hold so much hope for our future and no investment can be said to be too much for them."
According to him, his administration had from inception realised the importance of education and has continued to prioritise the development of the sector.
"We declared a state of emergency in the sector and in the process, admitted more than one million kids into school for the first time. We'll continue in that regard until all children of school age who should be in school are in school," he said.
The Governor congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and all Nigerians on the milestone achieved by the country.
