Sen. Tinubu expressed keen interest in achieving Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI).

Madam Oluremi Tinubu, Nigeria’s First Lady, has given reassurance to the youth and students of the country about a promising future ahead of them. On March 15, 2024, in Abuja, Mrs. Tinubu delivered this promise while presenting a large donation of exercise books to the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) for the benefit of public primary school students and Junior Secondary School students nationwide. She explained that the donation was a key component of her initiative called Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), which focuses on providing support for education.

Positive change is on the horizon for Nigeria. The dedication to the younger generation is unwavering as the government strives to create a brighter future for all. Rest assured that everything the government does is with it’s citizens’ best interests at heart. Citizens’ future is their number one priority, and even when they are feeling weary, citizens’ well-being is always on their minds. They are committed to going above and beyond to ensure that Nigerians’ lives surpass the one they have lived.

Her guidance encouraged students to focus on their academics.

Their plan is to distribute 50,000 exercise books to every state, including the FCT. Kano and Lagos, on the other hand, will receive double that amount with 100,000 copies each. The RHI Coordinators in every state will collaborate with the State Universal Education Board to procure the exercise books, as mentioned by her. Her guidance encouraged students to focus on their academics, emphasizing the importance of education in shaping them into responsible members of society down the road.

She emphasized the importance of education for all young individuals, advising them to steer clear of gangs and resist peer pressure. The key, according to the statement of the first lady, is to maintain open communication with both parents and teachers. Dr. Hamid Bobboyi, in his role as the Executive Secretary of UBEC, expressed his gratitude towards the first lady and her team for their continuous support in the education sector, acknowledging the donations they have received.

Children at the school need more than just textbooks to read.

He expressed admiration for the first lady’s evident dedication to children, encouraging others to follow her example in improving the lives of children and women nationwide. He said he would like to express his gratitude to the RHI and the first lady for their dedication to improving education, with a particular focus on the education of girls. Their appreciation for the service on behalf of UBEC knows no bounds. A couple of days ago, they visited Bauchi for the opening of a new ICT centre.

Additionally, there was also the inauguration of a Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) facility for the state government, as well as a special school – an alternative high school specifically for girls. He said they are thrilled to receive such a generous donation, as it is crucial for the school system. The children at the school need more than just textbooks to read; they also need supplies to write with, the UBEC Executive Secretary expressed enthusiastically.
