Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has lauded the Sokoto State House of Assembly for passage of the Right to Education law.
The Right to Education law provides free and compulsory basic education to all children in the state.
It compels governments and parents to ensure all children between the ages of 6 and 18 are educated at public expense.
It also prescribes punishment for parents and guardians who refused to let their children attend school.
Tambuwal described it as a key intervention in the effort to expand access to education in Sokoto state.
