“And I will by personal example ensure that my son will be six years of age in 2019 will be enrolled in a public school in Kaduna State, by God’s grace,” El-Rufa’i had said.
In an interview with journalists in kaduna after he enrolled the child, El-Rufa’i explained that it was a commitment that had been fulfilled.
“I went to a public school like this. In fact, the school I went to is not as good as this one, but here I am, because of the quality of teaching I got.
“I made that commitment because I believe that it is only when all political leaders have their children in public schools that we will pay due attention to the quality of public education.
“My intention is to ensure that all our public schools offer quality education, and so we are encouraging all our senior public servants to send their children to public schools.
