Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal, has commissioned key projects in Gummi, Bukkuyum, and Maru local government areas.

The state government has outlined a series of projects known as the ‘Zamfara Rescue Projects’ to commemorate the first year in the office of the Dauda Lawal’s administration.

A statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Bala Idris, emphasized that the project’s commissioning commenced with the Tsangaya Modern School in Gummi local government area. According to him, the Tsangaya Modern school has been named after his eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III OFR, who served as the special guest of honor.

The statement read in parts: “Today, Governor Dauda Lawal commenced a state-wide tour across the 14 local government areas of Zamfara to inaugurate key projects initiated by his administration over the past year.

“The projects were tagged as rescue projects, focusing on areas that add value to the lives of the people, including security, health, education, and infrastructure, among others.”

Delivering his speech in Gummi LGA, Governor Lawal restated that the Tsangaya school is a project conceived and executed by his administration as part of the drive to ensure universal basic education for all school-age children across the state.

“The Tsangaya education system was the dominant form of education in this part of the world. It is a system through which religious education and values are transmitted to all who pass through it.

“Considering the significance of the Tsangaya system to our society, policymakers are desirous of a framework where Islamic education, which is the focus of the Tsangaya system, and Western education can co-exist. This aims to give our children knowledge and skills to help them fit better into the new scheme of things worldwide.

Mainstreaming the two systems, therefore, is the surest way of bringing more progress to our people and communities. “The system will, therefore, mainstream the Arabic schools’ curricula, integrating them with Islamic studies and Western education.

The government has also integrated it into the Universal Basic Education Programme. “Subjects like English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and vocational education will be taught alongside Islamic education, enhancing the children’s skills development and spiritual well-being.

“This project comprises the construction of nine hostels, teachers’ quarters, a perimeter wall, solar-powered electrification, boreholes, furniture, teaching and learning facilities, and much more. “Importantly, the school has a vocational center where training in carpentry, woodwork, masonry, tailoring, computer appreciation, and cobblery will be provided to the learners.

This will enable them to practice the skills they acquire and assist them in earning a living.” In Nasarawa Burkullu, Bukkuyum local government area, Governor Lawal commissioned the General Hospital, which was upgraded from a primary healthcare center.

“The newly upgraded facility will provide comprehensive healthcare services such as emergency care, surgical, maternal, and child health services. “The projects executed include the construction of additional structures and renovating existing ones, such as an isolation center, mortuary, accident and emergency, theatre room, male and female surgical wards, GOPD, laboratory, pharmacy, antenatal care, and pediatrics. Others are administration blocks, staff quarters, mosques, and boreholes.”

In Maru local government, Governor Lawal assessed the ongoing renovation of the General Hospital Maru, which included repairing all structures and providing state-of-the-art facilities to boost its capacity to provide effective healthcare services for the people.
