The House of Representatives flagbearer for Fagge federal constituency, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Alhaji Akibu Sani Lawan Nabayye, has said that empowering youth for academic purposes would be his major priority if given the mandate to serve at the National Assembly come the year 2023.
Speaking to newsmen in Kano, Nabayye stated that he was ever ready to give scholarship to students in his constituency, considering the need for the less-privileged students, adding that Fagge Local Government Area was graciously endowed with erudite professors and notable academics who had carved a niche for themselves in their respective academic careers.
According to him, he had chosen to accord high priority to education knowing that without education, the future would never be rosy, stressing that with the scholarship package he set up, youth in his constituency would have the opportunity to attain the height of academic excellence and greatness.
He pointed out that no responsible politician in position of authority would love to pay lip service to the education sector at the expense of his people, affirming that in the developed world, the budgetary allocation given to the sector was unprecedented.
He called on youth in the Fagge federal constituency to pursue their academic programmes with absolute commitment and vigour, noting that the days for one to be indolent and reticent were over.
