GOVERNOR Murtala Nyako of Adamawa has commenced the distribution of free uniforms to primary school pupils in the Mubi South Local Council of the state.
Nyako, while inaugurating the exercise at Gella village in Mubi, said his administration had initiated a free uniform programme in all public primary schools in the state.
He said the gesture was to enhance discipline and expand the scope of school enrolment in the state.
The governor said this would also support parents as his administration was providing free uniforms to all pupils in Primary One to Primary Six.
“This is also to instill discipline and promote personal hygiene habit in the pupils,” he added.
Nyako said his administration had executed various school development projects designed to re-invigorate the education sector and enhance access to free quality education.
He urged parents and teachers to ensure effective utilisation of the uniforms by their wards.
