=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has urged the contractors of the Dala Inland Dry Port project to establish a primary school as a form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Amaechi made the call during the inspection of the Port, lamenting the number of out-of-school children in the area which he said constituted a grave security challenge if not addressed.
“Meanwhile, we saw an army of children chasing us as we were coming and I said this is a huge challenge on our education. Whether we like it or not, if we don’t educate them, they will educate us and when they educate us we will run into our houses. So we better educate them,” Amaechi said during his visit to the Palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.
He also took to his official handle on Twitter to announce that he had mandated the contractors to do the school construction.
“Inspecting the site of Dala Inland Dry Port in Kano with the State Governor, @GovUmarGanduje today, I mandated the Project Contractors to include a Primary School in their Corporate Social Responsibility plans and offer free education to children in that area,” Amaechi said on Twitter.
