Sacked Minister Of Education Wants To Return To Teaching As ASUU Still On Strike by deolascope: 2:45pm On Sep 12, 2013

It’s going to take some time to get used to addressing her as a “Former Minister” but yes, that’s what she is now.

The Former Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufa’i, who was among the nine ministers relieved of their positions by President Goodluck Jonathan in a cabinet reshuffle on Wednesday, has said she will be going back to the University to teach.

She handed over the affairs of the Education Ministry to the Minister of State, Nyesom Wike, as directed by the President, and told newsmen that she would be going back to continue with her job as a teacher.

Before her appointment as a Minister, Rufa’i was a professor of Curriculum Studies at the Bayero University, Kano. She was recommended by her state governor Sule Lamido, to take on the post as Minister of Education.

“I am going back to resume my job as a professor of Curriculum Studies at the Bayero University Kano,” she told newsmen as she expressed gratitude to the President for the opportunity given her to serve as a cabinet minister. “I have enjoyed a close working relationship with the President. Of course, there were times we had our disagreements, but overall we enjoyed working together.”

But hey Madam Professor, don’t forget that Bayero University is closed from the ongoing strike, so no “resume my job” for you yet!

Does this imply that the former minister is now jobless?

She's a professor at the Bayero University, Kano.. Only went on a sabbatical so as to take up a ministerial appointment, so she still have her job.. Its not a big deal...
Their are loads of lecturers in public universities who also go on sabbatical & take up administrative & teaching jobs in private schools,or why do you think most are not really bothered if ASUU resumes or not
