Zamfara State Government says its proposed bill in the state House of Assembly will stop school-age children from hawking during school hours in the state.

Governor Bello Matawalle disclosed this in an interview with newsmen shortly after receiving an Award of Excellence for teachers’ welfare in Enugu.

The award was from the Association of Primary School Head Teachers of Nigeria in Enugu.

Matawalle, who was represented by the Chairman, Zamfara State Universal Basic Education Board, Alhaji Abubakar Maradun, said that the government will not leave any child behind in its resolve to ensure that each child gets basic, compulsory and free education.

According to him, the bill will also seek to assist the government to see that all school-age children are in school to get basic educational learning.
