The State Justice Commissioner, Sulaiman Usman speaking to Newsmen in Sokoto, explained that with the bill, Sokoto State has emerged as the first to provide the right to education in line with chapter two of the 1999 constitution.

The bill is a component of the emergency in the education sector declared by governor Aminu Tambuwal last December.
