0 10

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has reaffirmed his resolve to upgrade the quality of education in the state; saying, there is no going back on education sector reforms in the state.

He said he stands firmly by the long-term interests of the 2 million pupils in public primary schools, and would not be derailed by the agitation of 21,000 unqualified teachers.

He however, stressed that the process of recruiting 25,000 new teachers is going well, noting that retraining unqualified teachers on the pay roll is an abdication of duty.

El-Rufai who spoke through the permanent secretary of the state Ministry of Education, Adamu Mansur condemned reports of serial criminal actions that have taken place in the last three days.

He specifically condemned the protest led by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), saying the government will not allow anyone to get away with criminal activity under the cover of industrial relations.
