Saraki applauds Buhari’s government


President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has commended the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government for adopting the “Every Child Counts” education policy initiated by his (Saraki’s) administration 10 years ago.

Saraki claimed to have adopted the policy when he was the Governor of Kwara State.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, and forwarded to DAILY POST on Friday, the Senate President applauded the government for keying into his decade-old vision for education reform, which was initiated to resuscitate public education in Kwara State by ensuring an improvement in teaching quality across the state and building strong educational institutions in the state through the development of the Ministry of Education, the Teaching Service Commission and strengthening the State Education Management Information System, EMIS.

“I commend the Federal Government for adopting and modifying the ‘Every Child Counts’ programme that we began in Kwara State in 2008 for the entire country. This shows that this administration values such time-tested ideas that leave a positive impact on the lives of our people – especially our young children.

“Right now, we must look beyond our political affiliations to address the issues that are important to our people. Other states across the nation should key into the successes of the Kwara State model, as the Federal Government has done, to ensure that we not only get our students back in the classrooms but also to improve the quality of their education through strategic and holistic reforms,” the Senate President stated.
