Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has donated an office apartment to the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi states. The office will serve as field office for the agency.
Before the opening of the new office apartment, the Sokoto Government and the UNICEF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on child education, health and malnutrition in the state.
The agreement was signed by Tambuwal and UNICEF’s Country Representative in Nigeria, Ms Jean Gough.
“We have so far met our target for school enrollment for 2016. So signing of this agreement is one event we have been waiting for as it will ensure the improvement of the lives of children in various sectors of development,” Tambuwal said.
“We look forward to collaborate with any organization across the globe in making the state achieve all necessary needs across all sectors,” he added.
The governor assured that the government would remain committed to the course of children’s welfare in spite of the myriad of challenges confronting it.
