Plans are on the way by the Kano state government to establish a Chinese, sports and Agricultural academy in the state by October.

This was disclosed by the state Commissioner of education, Alhaji Tajuddeed Gambo, during an interview with Peoples Daily at the weekend in Abuja.

He said the state government is collaborating with the government of republic of China to build the Chinese College.

 The Commissioner said the state government had employed the services of two Chinese citizens who have been in the state in the last six months to teach 30 selected secondary school teachers Chinese language.

 He said the pioneer teachers who are undergoing training in the language were recently invited to a radio live programme where they had discussion in Chinese language.

He said the pioneer teachers will leave for China in two months where they will go to sharpen their language skill before they return to the country to start teaching the students state.

He said the idea to establish a Chinese College was to encourage business men going to China to learn the language for easy transaction .

According to him, a lot of business men in the state travel to China to import goods without knowing how to speak  the language while the increasing number of Chinese people who do business at the popular Kantin kwari textiles market in the state can speak Hausa langauge.

 Gambo said Governor Kwankwaso is establishing the sports secondary school because sports is money and when established it will generate money for the state.

 According to him, only interested students and those who are good in sports will be admitted in to the college adding that the students will be subjected to a lot of coaching by the best of coaches and instructors to be the best and  to be able to compete favourably with their counterparts in other parts of the world.

 He said the agricultural academy also coming up in October will train students to be Nigeria’s food problems solvers adding that students admitted into the school must take agriculture first as a basic subject and that all the students’ entrepreneur subjects must be agricultural biased.

‘When our students of agricultural college graduate and do not wish to further their studies or did not find any job to do they can be self- reliant’.

‘We have to equip our youths with skills because most of the problems we have in the country today is because we did not take care of the teeming youth in the country. This is the idea behind those schools the governor is establishing in the state’, he said.
