A statement issued by Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye on Thursday, said that the decision was taken by the State Executive Council chaired by Governor El Rufai.

The Kaduna State Government has approved the disbursement of N81 million to 13 researchers to study the various aspects of education reforms in the state since Governor Nasir El Rufai administration came into office.

Adekeye said that the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Shehu Usman Muhammad, had briefed the council that 13 proposals were selected from the 75 that were submitted.

Earlier, the Ministry had issued an invitation for expression of research interest in October 2020 and 75 researchers had indicated interest, the statement quoted the commissioner as saying.

‘’Scholars were invited to assess the education sector in Kaduna State in the light of ongoing reforms and to help improve knowledge on issues such as access to education, the quality provided and the trajectory of human capital development in the state,’’ he said.

The Special Adviser pointed out that the ‘’proposals were evaluated by a 12-member committee, chaired by Professor Ben Chindo of Kaduna State University.

‘’The committee selected 13 research proposals for the award of grants after rigorous screening. The selected research projects are expected to be completed within nine months, after which the State Ministry of Education will organize a conference to present the research findings, ‘’ he added.

The statement argued that the budget for research grants will continue to be domiciled in the Ministry of Education, but ‘’Kaduna State Government will broaden the scope of funded research to other sectors such as Agriculture, Health, Infrastructure and Security.’’
