The Kaduna State chapter of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the continuous sacking of civil servants by governor Nasir el-Rufai.
The PDP chairman in the State, Mr Felix Hassan Hyat also backed the ongoing strike action embarked upon by teachers in the state.
In a swift reaction, the director of Media and Publicity of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State, Mr Manasseh Istifanus, accused the PDP and Union leaders of insensitive to the plight of the public school pupils who deserves to be thought by qualify teachers.
According to PDP, “The illegal and undemocratic sack of teachers and other civil servants in the state has apparently shows that the el-Rufai government is insensitive and out rightly poised to increase the level of unemployment and poverty in the state, instead of alleviating it.”
“The incessant sack of civil servants in the state if allowed to continue unabated would definitely lead to high rate of crime, social vices and would dampened the morale of civil servants in the state.
“The leadership of the party can’t fathom why the el-Rufai government would appropriate the sum of N1billion in the 2018 budget for the construction of new legislative quarters, after selling the ones on ground and numerous government houses across the state at a cheap price to friends and cronies, in line with its so called monetisation policy.
“With this, the el-Rufai’s administration has obviously demonstrated its penchant for deception, policy inconsistency and summersault. All aimed at deceiving the public, in other to curry their support as we approach the 2019 general elections,” said PDP.
Justifying the sack, APC said, “The state government is trying to create equal opportunity for the children of the rich and the poor to access quality education.”
According to them “the PDP is not ashamed that it couldn’t gather the political will to effect changes in the educational sector when they were in power, but the APC government came and saw the need to effect those changes. We advise the PDP, his executive members and the union leaders to take their children to be thought by those unqualified teachers,” he said.
