Below is full write up, unedited:
WEEP NOT MY CHILDREN: I NEED YOUR PRAYERS
I have for days today been mulling this idea and it has reached the level where I have to share it with you because I earnestly need your prayers.
I am currently in direct talks with various stakeholders in the educational sector of Katsina state towards sponsoring all SS3 students in all the Secondary Schools of the state to write WAEC/SSCE and NECO. I want to foot the total bill so that no child of Katsina parentage will drop out this coming season Inshaa Allah.
This I will do as a sign of commitment that the PDP government under me will totally restore the payment and sponsorship of our young students to pursue education free at our expense and to realise their dreams and potentials without let or hindrance. The idea of subjecting students to a certain conditional exammination before sponsorship is not only escapist but irresponsible. No responsible parent will take his face away from his child for failing an exammination. You cant ask for what you did not give. Give them good learning environment, well trained teachers then you can set the standard!
I am going to use all the available institutions, both governmental and non governmental towards achieving this dream. What I ask from you is prayer!
May Allah see us through. Thank you very much!
