The member representing Kano municipal in the House of Representatives, Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada, has reiterated the need to invest more in education.
Sharada also accused some politicians of supplying drugs and dangerous weapons for the youth for some selfish reason.
The rep was speaking on Saturday during the 40th Anniversary of Mass Communication Alumni Association (BUMCAA) at Bayero University, Kano.
He said that there was no better investment in any society than the provision of the right atmosphere through education.
Sharada argued that societal development has a direct link with people’s educational attainment, saying education and development cannot be separated.
He said, “Education is the key that unlocks everything. And for this, I would like to call on politicians, philanthropists, businessmen and other well-meaning Nigerians to heavily invest in education.
“For politicians, there is no better investment than providing the right atmosphere and an enabling environment for our children to forge ahead educationally.
“Instead of supplying drugs and dangerous weapons to the so-called political thugs, politicians should instead choose to sponsor them and make their lives better,” he added.
The events, which took place on Friday and Saturday at BUK, aimed at commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Department of Mass Communication of the institution.
