In its efforts to fight poor reading culture among students and youths in the country, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has donated a substantial number of reading texts to many public schools in Niger State.
According to its Niger State coordinator, Mrs Munirat Lawal, who represented the Board in Minna, the move was in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.
When handing over the books, Lawal stated that the Board had embarked on the initiative in order to enhance reading culture “among the upcoming generation of Nigerians.”
Receiving the donation on behalf of Niger State Government, the Commissioner of Education, Mrs Hannatul Jibrin, expressed her gratitude to the Board being led by Professor Ishaq Oloyede whom she described as a mentor and result-oriented leader.
Among the dignitaries who were there to receive the books were the Permanent Secretary, Niger State Ministry of Education, Dr Abdullahi Imam, and other notable directors in the ministry.
Jibrin pledged to ensure that the books would be delivered to the intended beneficiaries they were meant to serve.
She advised other government agencies to emulate the good gesture of JAMB.
