The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, has disclosed that while in Primary School, he had to cut grass to put breakfast on his table the following morning before going to school the following morning.
He said this on Thursday while charging students to seize every opportunity at their disposal to improve their education. This came up during the maiden Matriculation of about 136 students of Katsina State Institute of Technology and Management, KSITM.
He urged students to utilise every positive opportunity that comes their way, rather than wait for others to help them.
“On holidays, get something doing. Sell sugarcane. Maybe you need only N1,000 to start a business of sugarcane selling, or dates or tiger nuts selling. There are so many things you can do with your lives.”
Speaking to the 136 students being matriculated – 49 in Networking and System Security, 41 in Software Engineering, and 46 in Banking Operations, the Governor assured them that the government would continue to support the education sector in the state.
