    The Kano State government has made international scholarships available to Persons Living With Disabilities in the state.

    The government said persons with disabilities will benefit from the state government overseas scholarship scheme as long as they possess the requisite qualifications.

    The State Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Umar Haruna Doguwa disclosed this on Thursday.

    According to Doguwa, “It is part of  the current administration’s policy to ensure fairness and equal access to education for every indigene of the state, in line with international conventions.

    “We will  surely offer scholarships to those with First Class and Second Class Upper degrees, including those with disabilities, to encourage them to become productive citizens and live meaningful lives.”

    Doguwa said, “The government will also explore the possibility of establishing inclusive schools in parts of the state, even as the 5opportunity will also be explored to provide inclusive facilities in existing public schools.

    This is to make sure that people with disabilities are carried along in our development plans.”

    He stressed that, as part of the determination to support PWDs, the state government recently offered 150 NECO examination registration forms to them, urging beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity to ensure better living standards.
