Tijjani Tumsah, vice chairman, Presidential Committee on North East Initiative, made this known on Wednesday, July 12 during a routine evaluation and monitoring of students under the initiative in Kaduna. According to him, the students were making progress and should be encouraged to be useful to themselves and the society.
His words: “Some of the students have not been to school for some years but they are picking up fast. “Unity schools are the perfect place for them to socialise and blend because of the different cultures, traditions and religions in the country.” He said five of the students had passed their JAMB and had written the West African Examination (WAEC) and were now waiting for the NECO examination
