Shinkafi made the call on Tuesday, in Gusau, at a Town Hall meeting organised by the Zamfara Circle, an NGO
The Dean of the Faculty of Science at the Federal University, Gusau, noted that many of the vices exhibited by youths in the state were carried out by children of illiterate mothers who did not have the capacity to train their children.
She said that marrying an educated woman would eliminate thuggery, illness, illiteracy, poverty and hunger from the society, “as such mothers will ensure that their children go to school to become better citizens of the society.”
She also explained that the issue of maternal, neo natal and infant mortality would be significantly addressed, thereby ensuring a healthier society.
Guest speaker at the event who is also the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Abdullahi Shinkafi, said the state had been going backwards in the past years.
He called for partnership between the government and the citizens to address the problems facing the state.
