The Speaker, Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, has urged owners of private schools in the state to provide quality education to pupils and students to enhance development.
The speaker made the call while playing host to the Association of Private School Owners of Nigeria (APSON) Nasarawa State Chapter on Thursday in Lafia.
He said the importance of the education to societal development could not be overemphasised, hence the need for all hands to be on deck to ensure quality education is provided across the state right from the elementary level.
The speaker informed the association that the assembly would propose a bill to regulate establishment and operation of private schools in the state.
” I want to appreciate you for the visit and for complementing state government efforts in the education sector.
” I want to also assure you of our support at all times as education is the bedrock for the development of any society, ” he said
The speaker also assured of the assembly’s readiness to work closely with Gov. Abdullahi Sule to create an enabling environment for teaching and learning.
“We are working in synergy with Gov. Abdullahi Sule to continue to provide quality education in the state.
” Gov. Abdullahi Sule has the concern, care and love for the education sector and the people of the state, ” he said.
He said the house is committed to make laws and passed resolutions that have direct bearing on the education sector in the state.
Earlier, Mr Agada Abraham, the State Chairman of the Association, said the visit was to congratulate the speaker on his re-election for the third term.
Abraham also appreciated the speaker over his leadership qualities.
The chairman said that the association is in full support of the bill to regulate the establishment and operation of private schools in Nasarawa State. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
