Senator Ali Wakili representing Bauchi South senatorial district has vowed to equip the less-privileged students to obtain necessary western education, promising to make a difference in terms of education, human development and agriculture in his constituency.
Wakili, who is chairman of the Senate Committee on Poverty Alleviation, presented the science and laboratory kits to some secondary schools in his constituency on Monday.
While answering questions from newsmen after presenting the equipments, he averred that, “This gesture is coming under the Ali Wakili legacy, not the constituency project. I promised to make a remarkable difference as a senator even if it is for a year or two. I want to leave a legacy in terms of education, human development and agriculture, hence my decision to donate these science kits. This is the fourth phase of the project and we intend to continue by God’s grace to serve our electorate.”
He said work was in progress for the construction of computer centres in Kirfi and Dass Local Government Areas within his constituency that would be used to train students, especially on how to write JAMB examination using computers.
The senator recalled that he had earlier sunk over 270 boreholes in numerous communities in his constituency and distributed fertilisers to those communities, as well as the building of Information and Communication Technology, ICT, centres.
“What my predecessors in office shared are vanities such as motor-cycles which appeased only pedestrian politicians; but I want to leave lasting legacies which could vividly be seen even after my tenure in the Senate. The science and laboratory kits being presented to educational institutions is aimed at giving proper foundation to the young ones who are living in an era of ICT and internet world, hence their sensitisation to modern technology.
“If you look at it, all Nigerian elite today came from the rural areas and outshine those in the urban areas; and we are sharing those things without religious or ethnic differences because all of us are one. We have taken an oath before everybody and we should be accountable to God,” he concluded.
Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, the principal, Baitul Hikma Secondary School, Muhammad Junaid, and Emmanuel Isang, chairman, Parents, Teachers Association, PTA, of Baptist Royal Academy, Bauchi, commended the initiative of the senator, saying the kits would definitely facilitate the teaching of science subjects in their schools.
