Nigeria: Kano to Build Secondary School Hostels in Niger Republic

Kano — The Kano State government in collaboration with Niger Republic has concluded arrangements to build a mega secondary school in Niamey, Niger Republic as part of the bi-lateral agreement signed by both parties some months ago.

In a statement by the Director of Press to the governor, Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye, under the arrangement, Kano State will build hostels, dining hall and other facilities, while the Nigerien government will construct classrooms and administration block.

The statement added that the state government has already contacted the French government for qualified teaching staff and facilities for the school, while money for the project has been set aside by the state government.

It stated that when completed, the school is expected to accommodate at least 1,000 Nigerien and Kano students, who will study French in an effort to improve multi cultural relations.

Earlier, the head of the Nigerien delegation, Alhaji Muhammadou Saidou, said the visit was to finalize arrangements on the proposed school project, which he said will go a long way in consolidating Nigeria-Niger relations.
