Shocking: Governor Orders Officials To Withdraw Children From Private Schools by Nobody: 8:56pm On Aug 08, 2016
The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Ru­fai has stopped senior civil servants in the state from send­ing their children to private schools.

The State Commis­sioner for Education, Prof. An­drew Nock who disclosed this while speaking with newsmen said that plans have been concluded by the state government to restore public schools to their past glory.

According to him, the directive will be en­forced from the next academ­ic session while adding that the af­fected government functionar­ies have been directed to with­draw their children and wards from private schools and pre­pare them for admission into the public schools.

He said, “the state government has given order to all directors to withdraw their children from private schools to our own schools with a view to improving teaching and learn­ing in the schools.
On the failed attempts by successive administrations to implement similar policy.

“Our government is not like the previous ones. What we will do is to monitor it to en­sure that this order is carried to the latter,” he added.



The commissioner also disclosed that as part of the efforts to revamp education in the state, 15 pub­lic secondary schools have been converted to boarding schools with effect from the next ses­sion.

The schools: Queen Amina College, Kadu­na; Government Girls Second­ary School, Kawo; Government Technical College, Malali; Bare­wa College, Zaria; Girls Sci­ence Secondary School, Kwoai.

Also, Government College, Kagoro; Government Girls Secondary School, Soba; Government Col­lege, Saminaka; Rimi College, Government College, Kaduna, Government Secondary School, Kachia; Government Girls’ College, Zonkwa and Govern­ment Secondary School, Giwa.

will not work. in as much as we'll love to see it happen, everyone still has a right on the kind of education he/she wants his/her children to receive. just like he cannot also prevent any civil servant from going abroad for medical check up as long as it is done on the civil servant's own time & dime.

They should be able to send their kids anywhere.
If his mandate was directed at his appointees, that would be good but not at Civil servants. I have to right to give my child the best education I can afford.

This shouldn't stop the govt from trying to improve Kaduna education.

Lovely move, to me, this should be a criteria in occupying any political post in this country. If u want to be a president or a governor,minster, senator, local government chairman etc, ur ward shld only attend federal or state institutions. No schooling abroad or private school. We shld apply this and let's see how our educational sector will not improve.

Like I keep saying making Nigeria great is not that difficult, we just need a sincere person without any religious sentiments and tribal bigotry at the top and we the citizen be ready to make the necessary sacrifice and we will see this country soar to great heighlet

But the wicked politician we have wld never let this happen, cos the feel the level of poverty and ignorance keeps us in check and most of us still come here fighting ourselves over people who have stolen our future.

To me if u have served this country in one political capacity since independent till now, u shld hide ur head in shame.

This is unconstitutional because it's applied too broadly. Why must a potential leader who has nothing to do with the deterioration of the Kaduna educational system be forced to enroll his/her child in a public school? The way to improve the educational system is by voting out elected officials who refuse to improve it not by forcing people's kids to attend public schools. We all have a right to run for public office without given up such a fundamental right.

They should justify it on the basis of their net worth at least. Essence is the school must Kaduna monied people want to enrol their children and ward. Again El Rufai and other leaders must revamp the education sector.
