Send Your Children To School Or Be Sent To Prison – El-Rufai

The Kaduna state governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai has warned parents in the state to either start warming up for various jail terms or leave the state if they fail to send their children to school.

The governor who issued the warning at the screening of a documentary, “He named me Malala,” organised by his wife, Hadiza at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House also berated street begging.

He said, “You can leave Kaduna State if you don’t want to send your child to school next month. No street begging again. All our children must go to school. Any parent who refuses to send his or her child to school will be prosecuted and send to prison.”

Hadiza said the state government decided to support the large population of young girls that are currently out of school with education and training they need to contribute to the society.

El-Rufai’s wife said, “I wish to start by thanking all of you for coming to this screening of the ‘He named me Malala Documentary.’ While most of us know Malala as the 19-year-old Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, it is important to know where her journey started.

“Malala was just a regular Pakistani girl  with a penchant for education until in 2012 when her pursuit for education resulted in her being shot and put in a coma. The attack received worldwide condemnation, she has since recovered from the tragedy and has  translated this tragedy to worldwide advancements in girl child education.

“In Kaduna State, we are working assiduously to create opportunities, the percentage of girls out of school is way too high and this is a problem we have decided to solve. In cognisance of this, we are working hard to increase female enrolment in good schools, improve school  curriculum and make affordable health care available for everyone.”

Prof. Andrew Nok, the state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology said the current administration had awarded scholarships to 40 girls to study Medicine in Uganda to encouraging the girl-child education.
