Kaduna School kidnap: el-Rufai speaks on son’s safety  


Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai has been dragged into commenting on the safety of his son who he recently enrolled in a public primary school.

Speaking against the backdrop of the abduction of six students and teachers of Engraver College a private secondary school, in Kakau Daji Village in the Chikun Local Government Area of the state on Thursday, Gov. el-Rufai said, “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 one of the two million children we have in Kaduna primary schools. I have no intention of reviewing that.

“For me, taking my child to a government school was not only a commitment I made a clear expression that I have enough confidence in the quality of our public schools.

“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.”
