The United States government, through the Agency for International Devel­opment (USAID), has signed a Mem­orandum of Understanding (MoU) with Soko­to State as a part of its continued support to the education sector.
The MoU was signed between the USAID Mission Director, Michael T. Harvey and His Excellency, the Governor of

Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.

The five-year deal sets out the shared and individual commitments for collaboration in the education sector made by both the US­AID and Sokoto and provides a framework for mutual accountability for education activ­ities in the state.
A statement by the US Embassy in Abu­ja obtained yester­day, said: “The MoU supports the Sokoto State government’s goals and targets in its education sector strategic plans and establishes a prelim­inary plan for joint monitoring and evaluation of progress.”
“The United States commends Sokoto State for its extraordinary efforts to providing great­er learning opportunities for its children. This MoU will expand the partnership between the USAID and Sokoto State to improve primary education in Sokoto”, said USAID Mission Di­rector, Michael Harvey.
