KATSINA STATE governor, Aminu Bello Masari has relieved the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Halimatu Idris, of her appointment, noting however that her contributions to the state’s development cannot be overemphasised.
According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Alhaji Abdu Labaran, on Thursday in Katsina, the governor, in a letter personally signed by him thanked the professor for the services she rendered as a commissioner in the state.
The statement reads, “Her contributions to the development of education in particular in the state cannot be overemphasized.
“During her term as commissioner, schools were rehabilitated and upgraded, new ones were constructed, teachers were trained and the atmosphere made more conducive to learning and teaching.
“However, as political activities for the 2019 general elections are about to commence, it becomes imperative for the government to bring more active politicians on board to fasten activities of governance.”
Masari ended by wishing the sacked commissioner Allah’s guidance in her future endeavours.
