Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Monday enrolled his six-year-old child, Abubakar Al-Siddique El-Rufai into primary one in Capital School Malali, Kaduna, a public school, in fulfilment of a promise he made in 2017.
“The move is part of reforms to revamp public schools in the state to make them more competitive. We are determined to fix public education and raise their standards so that private education will become only a luxury.
“As we make progress, we will require our senior officials to enrol their children in public schools. And 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,” El-Rufa’i had said.
Briefing newsmen shortly after he enrolled the child, El-Rufa’i explained that it was a commitment that had been fulfilled.
