Kaduna – The Kaduna State House of Assembly said on Saturday it would continue to support the state government in its efforts at improving the quality of education.
The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Aminu Shagali, made this known at a news conference in Kaduna.
Shagali added that the lawmakers would accord the state government the support it would need to ensure that the children of the poor received the quality education they deserved.
He said that the best thing to do was to get everything right and ensure that the educational structure was in good shape.
“The sixteen years of PDP administration did not do anything to improve the existing schools.
“So what this administration is doing is to improve the quality of education and infrastructure of primary and secondary schools in the state,” he said.
On the issue of state government’s planned disengagement of teachers alleged to be unqualified, he said those with complaints should applied for redress and remarking of their scripts.
He said that the children of most of those making unnecessary comments on the issue “are not in public schools. Most of them there children are in private schools or studying abroad.
“They don’t want the children of the poor to have good, basic education.”
According to the speaker, the assembly has already set up a seven-member committee to investigate the issues raised by labour unions and proffer solutions.
He assured the people of the state that the House would continue to do its best possible to ensure that the education system in Kaduna was improved.
“For the people of Kaduna state, I want to say that we were sworn-in with the two holy books that whereby we said that we would do everything possible to ensure that our state develops and the educational system improves.
`We will make sure that everything improves in the state not only on education, but all other aspects,” he said.
