Education was the need of the hour in Fata, said Governor Sardar Mehtab Ahmad on Thursday. A team from Pearson, a global education company, met Mehtab and officials from Fata at the Governor House.
“There are schools and colleges in Fata but they are not functional. An effective delivery system is needed to implement a successful education system there,” said Mehtab.
