Any hope for the Nigerian girl?

Parents and guardians in Imo State who send their kids to hawk when they should be in school would be arrested.

Governor Rochas Okorocha, who read the riot act to them yesterday, said parents have no reason to keep their children and wards away from school.

He said the policy has been okayed by the House of Assembly.

The governor, who spoke at the seventh anniversary of the free education programme, said that the programme “has become a huge success today”.

He said: ”My desire is to see that every child of Imo is educated. I see education as life itself. Hence, I was propelled to introduce free education at all levels. My joy knows no bound that if I finish as governor today, I would have fulfilled my heart desire of eradicating illiteracy.”

The governor hinted that there has been an explosion in school enrolment because of free education. He said school enrolment has risen from 280,000 in 2011 to more than one million in 2017.
