“But I am happy to say, look at the enormous development this government brought in education, before you look at the other side where it’s still waiting.

“We know it is waiting, it is not a hidden thing. We can not go round at the same time because of the shortage of funds.

“But I assure you, if you go through our records, you will find this evidence.”

He added, “If you go round to areas where this government did work from 2015 to date, you will witness a number of schools that have been either totally or partially renovated across the state.

“Let me say infrastructure, when you go across these three senatorial zones in the state, we have constructed seven new schools.

“We have also partially renovated many schools – fully renovated over 57 across the 34 Local Government Areas of the state.

“Look at this, we have 560 secondary schools in the state. So look at it, what comes to Katsina is the only thing we can do.

“We thank God, at the end of the day you can now see the impact of this. We know, even by budgeting, because you cannot spend money by budgeting.
