The Sokoto State Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United States government to support primary education in the state.
Under the programme, which will run till 2020, not less than 500,000 school children will be reached.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal signed the agreement alongside the Mission Director of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mr Michael Harvey.
He said that his government is committed to the full implementation of the project, passed to him from the previous administration.
“This development is clearly a further demonstration of your commitment and our commitment to the future of our children.
“You have clearly been a very good friend, and USAID and indeed the American government have been helpful in so many ways but this particular one which is supporting us in the area of promoting access to quality education in the state is really very key and dear to our hearts.
“I am sure several other states will follow suit and benefit from this benevolence of the US government,” he said.
Governor Tambuwal added that whatever commitment they are supposed to meet as a government they are “ready to meet and ensure that whatever comes to us is judiciously applied as enshrined in the content and letters of this MoU”.
