By A’isha Raji

The governor of Kaduna state, Malam Nasir Ahmed El-Rufa’i has kept to his words of enrolling his ward in a public primary school in a move he discribed as part of the reforms to revamp public schools in the state.

Governor El-Rufai registered his 6 year old son, Abubakar at Capital School, Malali, Kaduna, Monday following the rehabilitation programme and overhaul of the education system in the state.

It would be recalled that the Governor who took the child to his first day in school in company with his wife, Umni, made a promise in 2017 that he will enrol his son in a public school when he attains the primary school age.

Reacting to the news on social media, Nigerians urge other leaders to emulate the governor’s effort by laying good example. “This is really commendable. Let other state governors emulate this gesture,” read a comment.

It would be recalled that, governor El-Rufa’i was vehemently criticised for relieving a large percentage of non-capable teachers after a thorough screening exercise. #
