Sokoto State Government will partner with the Catholic Church to improve education, healthcare delivery, religious harmony and peace within its borders and beyond for the benefit of the citizenry.
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal said this Monday when he received a delegation of the Sokoto Diocess of the Catholic Church, led by Bishop Matthew Kukah, who paid him a courtesy visit in Government House, Sokoto.
According to the governor, the role of the church in the provision of social services in the state is commendable, saying his administration will render any assistance required to expand the services of the hospital and school currently run by the Sokoto Diocess.
While urging the Bishop to look into areas of youth empowerment and skills acquisition, Tambuwal said the state government welcomes suggestions and ideas from private individuals and corporate organisations that will ensure the unity and progress of the state.
Earlier in his remarks, Bishop Kukah said the Church is ready to partner with the government in all areas of interest.
He commended the citizens of the state, especially the Sultanate Council, for promoting unity, justice and religious harmony.
