Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has stopped senior civil servants in the state from sending their children and wards to private schools.

The directive will be enforced from the next academic session.

Ahead of the time, 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.

In an interview with our reporter, the Commis­sioner for Education, Prof. Andrew Nock, said that plans have been concluded by the state government to restore public schools to their past glory.

According to him, “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, Nock said that “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.”
The commissioner said 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.

He named the schools as Queen Amina College, Kaduna; Government Girls Secondary School, Kawo; Government Technical College, Malali; Bare­wa College, Zaria; Girls Science Secondary School, Kwoai; 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.

Nock recalled that some of the schools were originally boarding institutions before they were converted to Day Schools.
To this end, Nock said “plans are underway to renovate and upgrade the hostels, library, clinics facilities and total landscaping of the schools to give them an aura of academic environment.”

Charity begins at home they say. Let him start it first. All his kids abroad and those in Private schools in Naija should be withdrawn to public schools then I will know he is making sense and then borrow a leaf from him.
