Gov. El-Rufai cancels school fees, promises free food, uniforms

Gov. El-Rufai cancels school fees, promises free
food, uniforms
Come September, students attending public
primary and secondary schools in Kaduna state
will get it all for free, with free food and uniforms
to boot.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai made the promise at the
weekend during a town hall meeting held in Zaria.
“From September your children will attend
schools for 9 years free of charge," the governor
"We intend to provide uniform, feeding in our
primary and junior schools in the state.
"There will also be no more PTA fees in our
It will be recalled that the past governor of the
state, Ramalan Yero, had in the build-up to the
2015 gubernatorial elections described El-Rufai,
free education promise as ''laughable' and
"It is so laughable for somebody whose children
already school in United Kingdom (UK) because
you don't believe in the system here. Because
you had the opportunity of taking your children
there," Yero had said through his spokesperson,
Ahmed Maiyaki.
"This is laughable, insulting for somebody to
imagine that he will provide free education or his
children will come back to public schools when
he does not even have children that will attend
school right now."
With the recent announcement, it then seems El-
Rufai is determined to fulfil his campaign
