Shettima said this initiative was part of the government’s `Conditional Cash Transfer’ scheme for poor households.
He said that the objective of the scheme was to ensure that parents sent their children to school rather than allow them roam the streets.
He blamed the Boko Haram insurgency for the poverty and ignorance in the state, adding that it disrupted the socio-economic activities in the state; and urged parents to send their children parents to school to safeguard their future.
He said government was also working on plans to reconstruct the 825 classrooms destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgents, to prepare grounds for the commencement of academic programmes in the affected schools
Responding, the chairman of the elders, Ahmed Yusufari, thanked Shettima for the visit.
