The Nasarawa State House of Assembly Committee on Education has praised Governor Abdullahi Sule for his significant efforts in advancing the state’s education sector.


The commendation was made by Abel Bala, Chairman of the Committee and Deputy Majority Leader of the House, when the management of the state scholarship board appeared before the committee for its budget performance review on Monday in Lafia.


Mr. Bala stated that Governor Sule deserved recognition for prioritizing the education sector in Nasarawa State. He promised to address the issues of low overhead costs, lack of operational vehicles, and delays in budget releases.


“We will take up your concerns and ensure they are resolved in the interest of our children and the education sector,” Mr. Bala added.


Earlier, Hajiya Sa’adatu Yahaya, the Executive Secretary of the board, expressed gratitude to the committee and the state government for their support of the board’s activities. She also commended Governor Sule’s administration for prioritizing students’ welfare but noted challenges such as low overhead, lack of operational vehicles, and delays in releases.


The committee also heard from the management of Nasarawa Information Technology and Digital Economy Agency. The committee chairman praised the Director-General of the agency, Haruna Sani, for prioritizing the training of students and others in ICT.


“You are doing very well in terms of ICT training. The committee will continue to support you for the overall development of your agency,” he said, also appreciating Governor Sule for his support of the agency.


Mr. Sani thanked the committee for its continued support and highlighted the agency’s commitment to training more people in ICT due to its importance for societal development. “We also have a partnership with JAMB where we assist with student registrations across the state,” he added.


Additionally, the committee hosted the management of the Nasarawa Vocational and Relevant Technology Board, led by its acting General Manager, Kasimu Hamidu, who identified challenges such as lack of manpower and inadequate funding.


In response, the committee chairman assured the board of the committee’s readiness to address these issues, stating, “Manpower is key to the development of any office or agency.”
