Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State has stated that his children will remain in public school despite news of a kidnap at a school in the state.
Gunmen stormed Engraves College where six females and two teachers were abducted.
Speaking with state house correspondence concerning the incident, El Rufai stated that “ My child should not be safer or more protected than any other child in Kaduna State .
“ I took an oath of office to protect everyone and my child is just only one of the two million children we have in Kaduna State primary schools and I have no intention of reviewing that .
“ For me , taking my child to a government school was not only a commitment I made , but a clear expression that I have enough confidence in the quality of our public schools for my child to attend .
“ We have already given directives that all the staff of our Ministry of Education who are in charge of managing our education system must have their own children in government schools, ’’ he said
