BY ISAIAH BENJAMIN, Kaduna
Group under the auspices of Kaduna State Patriots has commended the resolve of the Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir el-rufai in his quest to address the decadence in the educational sector especially at the primary level in the state.
“His resolve to take suicidal decision to terminate the appointment of ill equipped Twenty One Thousand Primary School teachers is not only commendable but worthy of emulation. It is a herculean decision that defies solution for more than a decade, successive Government failed in taking this decision for fear of losing elections”, the group stated.
This was contained in statement signed by Mr. Bulus Auta, Mallam Ibrahim Dodo, Alh. Muazu Sani and 16 Local Government Chairmen of the group across the state and made to newsmen in Kaduna Monday.
The group called on the people to reject the orchestrated political gang-up to deliberately divert the attention of the transparent Government assiduous effort to aggressively develop Kaduna State socio-economic infrastructures and the educational sector.
According to the statement, “ the gang-up against El-rufai is aimed at: graduating millions of illiterates every year from primary schools in Kaduna state, allowing semi-illiterates to teach our teaming brothers and sisters, our children, and our children’s children.
“Allowing teachers that were given ten years to earn NCE yet they failed. Architect Muhammad Namadi Sambo’s Administration as Governor of Kaduna State gave this earring teachers four years to obtain NCE they failed, late Mr. Ibrahim Yakowa of blessed memory gave these teachers additional four years which was concluded by Dr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero to earn NCE yet they failed. Mallam Nasir El-rufai on assumption of office gave these primary school teachers additional two years to obtain NCE, they all failed.
“It is hearthbreaking that, despite the promise to train these relieved teachers on entrepreneurship training to earn a living, yet agitations to scuttle the future of our generation yet unborn are still drumming by the enemies of Kaduna State.
The group reiterated that the strength of every Nation is in the youth and the strength of the youth is in Education, saying that the failed teachers must go and that the government decision to weed out unqualified teachers must be commended by all and sundry who mean well for the state.
