(Last Updated On: )

The Federal Government will establish special schools for women who abandoned school to get married , Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, has said .

“ All women that married at an early age will have the opportunity to continue their education from their husband ’ s houses .

“ The schools will be in two categories so as to avoid problems emanating from the establishment of the schools .

“ The first category is for those who started their schooling but due to one reason or the other dropped out.

“ The other category is for the Adult Literacy classes that will be established in all local governments to assist women to attain certain literacy level.

“ In the Adult literacy schools , the women will also be empowered with skills training during their lessons .

“ The women will be trained how to make soap , local soft drink, candle, pomade, cake , local hairdressing, tailoring and other small businesses. ” the minister told newsmen on Thursday in Katsina.

Alhassan appealed to religious and traditional leaders to continue supporting ongoing efforts to boost the enrolment of the girl- child into schools nationwide.

She said that the education of female children was very important as such the leaders should encourage parents to send them to school .
