Yesterday Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai surprised and at the same time got people talking when he enrolled his son into a public school.
Governor El-Rufai one time spoke about sending his child to a public school in Kaduna State and a lot of people didn’t believe his statement. On the 28th of December 2017 he wrote; , “I will by personal example ensure that my son that will be six years of age in 2019 will be enrolled in a public school in Kaduna State, by God’s grace”.
Fast forward to yesterday, the Governor of Kaduna state and his wife Ummi took their son, Abubakar Al-Siddique El-Rufai to enrol as a Primary One pupil of Kaduna Capital School.
Reforming the Education sector in Kaduna is a continuing struggle against decades of neglect. But the El-Rufai govt has a strong commitment to fix public education and raise the standard of public schools so that private education will become only a luxury.
