The Kaduna Government led by Governor Nasir El-Rufai has awarded scholarship to 30 female students from the State to study medical courses in Uganda.
The Commissioner for Education, Dr Shehu Adamu, said in a statement in Kaduna on Tuesday that the students would depart for Uganda before the end of January.
He said the aim was to encourage girl-child education by enhancing access to educational opportunities.
Adamu also announced that all teachers on deputy director level serving outside classrooms must return to classes before being promoted as director henceforth.
He said the policy, which came into effect from January 1, was to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in public schools.
The commissioner stressed that such personnel must also sit for promotion examination before their elevation.
