Officials in Plateau State say they have started online, radio and television classes “to help children keep up with learning” despite the closure of schools due to Covid-19.
Children, Lalong said, Wednesday in a press statement, “remain the heartbeat of our society and hold the key to our future.”
“We must continue to invest in their education, health and psychological development so as to prepare them for the task ahead,” said the Governor in the Children’s Day text signed by his Press Director, Dr. Simon Makut.
His administration, Lalong said has continued to provide “better environment for Plateau Children” by improving the quality of education and healthcare, as well as protecting them against all forms of abuse.
The Governor explained that his recent decision to return all street begging Islamic discipleship pupils locally referred to as Almajiris to their parents was to integrate them back into the society where they can access education and proper care.
