Gov Kefas declares free  primary, secondary education in Taraba

Gov Agbu Kefas of Taraba on Friday declared free education in all state government primary and secondary schools with effect from the next academic session.

This, he said was to cushion the effects of the removal of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).

Kefas Made the declaration while on the assessment  tour of primary and secondary schools in Wukari, his home town.

According to him, starting from the next academic session, primary and secondary education in Taraba  would be free.

The governor also noted that his administration would immediately embark on massive renovation of most of the schools to enable them to  meet the demands of the modern day education.

The Voice Media Trust (VMT NEWS) recalls that Kefas had recently declared a state of emergency on primary and secondary education as slashed the school fees of Taraba University and that of College of Nursing and Midwifery by 50 per cent.

“Let me announce to you that by next academic session, the state government will take responsibility of the school fees and all of you will attend school free of charge.

“We will continue to support you to have access to qualitative education for brighter future of our state,” he said.

Mr Daniel Nuhu, a Zonal Director of Education, lauded Gov Kefas for making out time to personally assess the condition of public schools in the state.

Nuhu noted that the free education and renovation of primary and secondary schools would go a long way in turning around the fortunes of the less privileged in the state  by granting them equal access to quality education.
