No going back on education reform in Kaduna— El-Rufai

El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has declared that there is no going back on the proposed education reform in the state despite the ongoing strike by the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT).

The Governor said on Tuesday in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, that the state government would not allow unqualified teachers in its schools.

He said the state government was determined to protect the future of the students as more than two million pupils were enrolled in public primary schools.

Aruwan commended teachers who reported to work in spite of efforts by the NUT to unlawfully prevent them from working.

He said the government had begun collation of reports from education administrators on teachers and reiterated that teachers who absented themselves from work would be sanctioned according to the law.

“Appropriate reminder of the potency of these rules (laws) has been issued in previous government statements.

“Across the state, the illegality of the NUT’s strike action is being compounded by physical attempts to frustrate those teachers who wish to work.

“No law permits any worker to tamper with another’s right to work. The attention of the security agencies has been drawn to this dangerous pattern of conduct,” Aruwan said.
