| September 22, 2012 More

The Bauchi State Government said on Friday it had enrolled 71,126 adults on its literacy classes across the 20 local government areas.

The Coordinator, Agency for Adult and Non-formal Education (ANFAE), Malam Yusuf Mohammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bauchi that the voluntary classes recorded impressive turnout.

Mohammed said  that participants were made to acquire both vocational and educational training.

He said the classes were conducted without any fees paid, adding that some of the beneficiaries were enrolled for three years while others for one year.

“The figure we are having is impressive and indicates that lots of adults that were not able to acquire the basic education during their childhood are massively turning out to participate voluntarily, because in 2011, we had just about 38,297  candidates that wrote the exams.

“In 2012, we have about 44,932 males and 26,194 females, including those at the women centres, and for this year, it will be ending by October,’’ he said..

“The agency issues successful learners with certificates and they are encouraged to continue in the institute so that they can obtain diploma certificates but for those that failed, they are equally encouraged to repeat the classes.(NAN)
