Send your child to school or be jailed, Kaduna govt warns parents

Published 31 minutes ago Kindly Share This Story On The Kaduna State Government, on Friday, advised parents to send their children to school or face prosecution in accordance with extant laws. The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs Phoebe Yayi, gave the advice in Kaduna during an interview with News Agency of Nigeria . Yayi stressed that every child has the right to free, compulsory and universal basic education, adding that the state government has a duty to provide such education. She said in meeting this obligation, the government has declared free education to every child from primary to secondary school in the state. The permanent secretary explained that the move was part of measures to ensure that every resident of the state was literate, and have a quality life. “Therefore, parents have no excuse not to send their children to school, as the government has taken off all financial burden from parents. “You should be aware that the Child Welfare and Protection Law, 2018, section 18 (6), stipulates that any parent or guardian who fails to send his or her child to school commits an offence. “It added that a parent is liable on a first conviction to be reprimanded and ordered to undertake community service and on second conviction risk fine or imprisonment or both. “As such, sending your children to school is no longer a choice, but compulsory and failure to do so is a criminal offence with a possible jail term.” She warned that on no account should any parent deny his or her child the right to education, which would unlock the child’s full potential for a better future. The permanent secretary added that even adults were given a second chance to acquire education in the spirit of “not living anyone behind.” (NAN) DOWNLOAD THE PUNCH NEWS APP NOW ON Receive Alerts on: Read more: The Punch Newspapers

Dis governor dont know the things to do / just saying nonsense since the begining of the years / Northern Nigeria 'more kids, more prosperity' experiment proven neg. Eastern Nigeria 'more kids, more prosperity' experiment yields + A quick research would reveal underlying variables responsible HRH Sanusi told them where to start from but hey he's the enemy

2023... This one hot oo A plea/request to all Ndi Igbo who are more focused on Education matters of Kaduna and other Northern States, please also remember to include South East Governors in your accountability focus. This school below is in Enugu. Many more like it across Alaigbo Follow ogene_ogbodo Good concept sir

Did you just wake up from sleep, were all all the schools Jonathan built for your children Nice one That is great MusadiqZ Those in the villages are not even aware of this directive. The state doesn’t even have the prison capacity to accommodate defaulters. If all the out of sch kids will go to sch tomorrow, no where to accommodate them. Just to encourage perhaps.

How smoke kills two Nigeriens in Kaduna – Daily TrustTragedy struck early Wednesday as two citizens of Niger Republic were found dead in their tea shop located ‎at Ibrahim Taiwo road, closed to Kasuwar Barci Market, in Kaduna state.

elrufai Excellently Kamar da gaske .. elrufai Which one is jail again here, oppressing and threatening the poor, instead of you to set up 100% free and compulsory education. Busy Threatening in a state full of Almajiris and preferring to build prisons for those that fail to comply with state fund. Hmmm Interesting🤔

Where's Dadiyata? Make public education free completely in the state. It’s a right to every child. elrufai Nice one 1st step well taken from the state government Basic education is now reviving under the most educated Governor 👌 This man dey smoke weed.

The governor should first create jobs and provide public infrastructures, like roads, transportation, electricity and water supply etc in Kaduna before issuing this treat to poor parents This is hypocrisy of the highest order . It’s a step in the right direction. Slowly but surely. 👍🏽 Sowing into the new decade...KadunaCitizens CivCenter KadunaTwitterHangout Kaduna leads others follow. FreeEducationForall elrufai

Which sch exactly? So that when they graduate you will provide job for them,,, high level robbry Only IPOB check their signatures..... This is a governor for the people, by the people and to the people! 😁. I try small. Jail their hausa asses sir!!! Kaduna is transforming 👏👏 Threat force gush🤕 elrufai Did i hear the STUPID HELLRufai well?. Why is the law now been promulgated, when the same you has been the governor over the last 4yrs?. You are a hypocrite and deceptive, all this 'I am a caring man' is aimed towards presidency 2023, you will NEVER get there. USEmbassyAbuja

If you don't give free primary and secondary school education you should be jailed too.

The state legislature should come up with a law that prohibits all public servants (elected or appointed) from sending their children abroad to school. Our public schools will experience an overnight reawakening. It's good to send children to school But it doesn't end there The Governor should also tell them to stop giving birth to too many children And Governor should also make sure there is food for the children to eat so they will like to go to school.

Commendable 💯 This will help the North, as well as the other part of the country. Good move! I hope he meant it. This is a very good news! Well done, El Rufai! I wish other governors will do the same. N who will take care of the kids? That 'advice' is too harsh from a leader to his people. 'Send your children to school or face the wrath of law', would have been better. No thanks... Because every state in Nigeria has the wherewithal to operate free education if only...

Misplaced priority, even in south, we still have out of school children let alone the home of Almajiris, Advice is for you to put up 100% free and compulsory education. If not, go build more prisons cos the existing ones cannot accommodate defiant parents in Sabon Gari LGA alone. elrufai Simple The height of madness is when you leave your own Eastern States to pitch Comment Tents on happenings from the North or Lagos

Kaduna: Police kill 2 bandits, rescue 20 kidnapped victims - Daily Post NigeriaSome passengers numbering about eight abducted on Wednesday afternoon along Kaduna-Zaria highway have been rescued by the police. Also rescued were three is this still a country? How long bow we going to live like this? I how the north has realized it's mistakes Gd why am i a Nigerian?

Supported. Stop the hypocritical hollow blabbering and ACT! Action speaks! It's a great idea, they should send as many of them who are given birth to children they can't chatter for to jail. This will serve as a deterrent to irresponsible parents giving birth to kids that will end up being problematic to the society because they are uneducated.

This a total shame !!! Wanting to jail parents who can't hardly fend for the children talk less of sending them to school. Northern region has low quality education, high level of poverty, high natality rate and no quality health. How big are kaduna jails? This is good. As long as it's sincere and followed up without discriminations.

elrufai This Is Very Commendable From GovKaduna But There Are Life's Challenges Facing Some Parents In The Communities, Particularly Poverty. The Government Must In Another Way Find Solutions To These Challenges Through Empowerment Aimed At Uplifting The Masses... elrufai Kayi dai dai My kinda law Such warnings have no meaning in the north. Tell them to stop producing children like rats and stop marrying 4 wives when they cannot afford to take care of a single wife. I am a Muslim, educated and fairly okay but I can't afford a second wife. Yet, a man selling kolanut,

elrufai elrufai child/ward & minors working as domestic staff... elrufai Why must we enforce an education that produce educated illitrates Its ok elrufai Good move coming from Governor Rufai.I just hope erring Parents,would be sanctioned.The kids,deserve a descent future. As your mouth open Na so you dey talk

I hope this will also apply to the ones that will rather bring them to Lagos to beg for alms elrufai I hope public in schools in KD are free to start with This headline is misleading... Do read the content... Provided the schools are affordable, it is a wonderful idea, HE elrufai. But can we also add that every governor who fails to secure the lives & properties of residents should be jailed as well for their incompetence as well? What is good for KENYA is good for UGANDA!!!

Audio Governor

elrufai If you don't know what to do with power you better resign OK how many scholarship did you give out to Kaduna state student and you are said things that is not relevant elrufai Are they running free educational system ? Kudos to el rufai,administrative law must be used to compile the recalcitrant parents or guardian to send their children to sch

elrufai I , hear you sir what of those that are not destine to be in school ? Please empower the parents too. Good job Provide good roads for your people or be jailed. Provide security of lives and properties for your people or be jailed. How do you make policies like this?

Anything from kaduna state is a scam. Good If the parents are jailed, Will their children still go to school? If yes, implore the method without jailing the parents! If no, the vission still failed. Advice: keep teaching parents children the importance of going to school. Employ or setup businesses for those that went

Ohh!! Allah, bless this Vibrant Gov. Nasser El-Rufai, and guide him well for this laudable intention. Aaamin. Bad rulers of our nation🇳🇬. Give speech like they were the one going to be paying for the schooling, still well said cuz some parents forgot it's their duty ! In this computer age. What a pity. The unity of Nigeria is not negotiable indeed.

You are spot on Everything for Nigeria na madness . Which one be send ur child to school or u will be Jailed.. how much do this citizen earn from the Government How many parents fit feed their family 2 times daily ? Not a bad one BUT how many of these parents are gainfully employed? If the school is free what's the parents waiting for?

'Col. Elrufai'? This short man makes a hella noise They should hurry up and build more prisons because larger population of the state will go to jail. Has Kaduna State domesticate the Child's right Act? Let's go beyond media stunt and backed actions. Good! Supported Good This is one of the worst governor in Nigeria

Good See this one . God which way sef
