The campaign organisation of the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna state, Hon. Isa Ashiru, has challenged the gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Uba Sani over his silence on the mass sack of teachers in the state.
The campaign organisation, in a statement on Tuesday frowned at the silence of Uba Sani, saying that his position must be made known to the public on the mass sack being the gubernatorial candidate of the ruling APC in Kaduna state.
In the statement signed by the Director public affairs Isa Ashiru Campaign organization, Yakubu lere El-Saed, explained that over 2000 teachers were sacked recently in the state.
Lere further explained that the state is planning to carry out demolition exercises at Gwari Market in Rigasa and Saminaka Market in Lere Local Government Area.
“Senator Uba Sani’s silence over this irrational decision has sent an open signal that, he will indeed continue with the current policies of gov El rufa’i, maybe that is why his slogan is continuity and consolidation of Gov El rufa’i ‘policies.
“It disheartening to note that, this singular act has completed destroyed primary education in the state. Available statistics have shown that, the rating of Kaduna state in terms of first school leaving certificate has never been as bad as the tenure of Gov Nasiru El-rufa’i one may keep wondering what he actually wants to achieve?
“We therefore wish to sympathise with the victims of this exercise and indeed the good people of Kaduna state in particular and NUT in general over the murder of education in the state and assured them if elected gov, Hon Isa Ashiru Kudan will reverse this policy and resuscitate education in the state.
“We therefore wish to call on them to take heart and leave everything to God but go out and register if they really want to get rid of this and indeed other bad policies of the APC government in the state,” the Director Public Affairs Isa Ashiru Campaign organization explained.
