The Federal Government is set to boost school enrolment in the country by ensuring enrollment of 13.6 million children by year 2020.
This was made known by Mrs Afiniki Dauda, the Focal Person of Social Intervention Investment Programme in Niger State.
She said, “The government also plans to ensure that these pupils are physically and mentally fit to face the challenges of education and life.
“This is one of the reasons the Federal Government introduced the home-grown school feeding and health programme and other social security schemes.”
Dauda did not reveal the number of children currently in school across the country.
She however said government was also determined to bring back into the school system, 11.4 million school children currently out of school, especially girls.
“The arrangement will prepare them for tomorrow and discourage them from being involved in criminal activities,” she said.
She said that the first activity to be carried out by the Niger office of the agency was the kick-off of the empowerment scheme for which participants in the first phase had been selected.
