Kebbi state Governor Atiku Abubakar Bagudu has said no state government can meet up with the international commitment on budgetary allocation to the education sector annually.

Bagudu made the assertion while speaking at the 10th anniversary of the Mallpai Foundation founded by his wife Aisha Bagudu in Kebbi State.

The governor said it was true that the World Bank had recommended that a minimum of $700 should be spent on each primary school pupil annually, amounting to about N100billion annually for 500million pupils, but asked, “where do we get the money from?”
