Gombe State Government has reiterated its structured plans to modernise Tsangaya system of education in the state.
Governor Muhammadu Yahaya, made the disclosure at a sensitisation workshop organised by the Gombe state Government through the Better Education Service Delivery for All; a programme in collaboration with Tazkiyah Educational Resource Centre to enlighten stakeholders on the need to adopt modern day approach in implementing Tsangaya system of education to conform with 21st century.
Represented by Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abubakar Kari, the governor said adopting the modern day approach was by no means changing the traditions of Quranic studies but adding dynamism to the system.
He said, “since inception in August 2019, BESDA has done creditably well in providing access to conventional education to all children residing in Gombe State, especially for the Almajiri and girl-child across the nooks and crannies of the State.
“BESDA has equally performed well in improving quality of teaching and learning in formal schools as well as the establishment of about 676 non-formal learning centres which include Tsangaya and girl-child centres across the state with over 70,000 learners.”
