The Kaduna State Government welcomes the firm statement by President Muhammadu Buhari recognizing the necessity of the education reforms we are pursuing.
We thank the President and many Nigerians for supporting the tough choice we have made in the interest of the future of our children.
The national conversation over the last week reflects a growing consensus that quality public education should be available for all citizens. Qualified teachers who are competent in their subject areas and equipped with the skills to teach and inspire pupils are crucial to delivering decent education.
We are witnessing the triumph of reason over sentiment. We owe our children unfettered access to decent education in the public system, and we shall not relent in delivering it.
