NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT RECRUITS TEACHERS FOR NOMADIC SCHOOLS
I guess most of us have heard something like ‘The al majiri schools’ in the north East right? Now here is another one called ‘The nomadic schools’. It’s an initiative of the Niger state government to encourage nomads to be educated. And in a bid to strengthen the system, the Niger state government is said to have commenced the recruitment of 618 nomadic teachers to teach in the 274 nomadic schools spread across the state.
According to the state Governor, Muazu Babangida Aliyu who made this known through the state commissioner of Education, Mallam Danladi Abdulhameed, at the opening ceremony for the ‘Training of Teachers in Nomadic schools on implementation of the of the Nomadic Education Curriculum and Textual Materials’ for the North Central Zone in Minna yesterday stated that the teachers were needed to meet the dearth of teachers in the nomadic schools.
He also stated that the teachers would be given special allowances to motivate them to accept their postings to the rural areas.
So after secondary school, will there be a Nomadic University too?
