The curtains have been drawn on digital education training for 50 female students in Bauchi State.
The training was organized by the State Council for Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) in collaboration with the Bauchi State Field Office of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
The training, labeled: “Digital Generation” focused on female junior high school students selected from six local government areas as part of activities marking International Day of the Girl-Girl 2021.
The six local government areas that have benefited from the training are Alkaleri, Bauchi, Shira, Ganjuwa, Toro and Ningi, which are the LGAs where UNICEF implements its programs.
While declaring the training open, State Education Commissioner Dr Aliyu Tilde reaffirmed the importance of girls ‘education and urged stakeholders to invest more in girls’ education for a better sustainable socio-economic development in the State.
According to the commissioner, who was represented by Hajiya Saadatu Mohammed, depriving a girl of a quality education would not only delay her progress, but also endanger her future.
Tilde, who called on parents and stakeholders in the sector to prioritize girls’ education, however recalled the need to invest heavily in the education of adolescent girls, who move from childhood to early adulthood, rather than sending them to the hawk wares / wares or giving them at an early wedding.
The Commissioner said: “Girls ‘education is a priority of our administration, and efforts are maximized to provide adequate funding and other logistical support for the promotion of girls’ education.
There is renewed hope because the education sector has continued to receive several interventions which have also reflected positively in the lives of school-aged children.
For her part, Halima Umar, UNICEF office manager at SUBEB, said investing in girls’ education would help ensure a bright future for girls and their communities.
According to her, the objective of the training is to promote the rights of girls around the world through the digital revolution and generation of girls in order to bridge the gender gap.
Halima recalled, however, that the gap was 13% in 2013 and 17% in 2017 in advanced countries, but in Nigeria, the gap is 43%, hence the need for more support for the education of women, especially girls as part of efforts to bridge the gap.
SUBEB President Dr Abubakar Dahiru, who was also represented by the Board’s Director of School Services, Korijo Umar, reaffirmed the board’s commitment to providing quality basic education in the state.
