Education: ADP Candidate Pledges To Declare A State Of Emergency In Kano
POLITICS DIGEST- In order to address the deteriorating state of education in Kano, the Action Democratic Party’s Gubernatorial Candidate for the 2023 General Elections in Kano and a member of the House of Representatives representing the Municipal Federal Constituency, Honourable Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada OON, said he will declare a state of emergency in the education sector the moment he is elected Governor of the state.
Honorable Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada made the statement while participating in an interactive session for Kano State 2023 gubernatorial candidates on education, health, security, infrastructure, governance, commerce, industry, agriculture, women, children, and youth development convened by Dr. Aminu Magashi in collaboration with NGO’s and civil society organizations.
Sharada said his government intends to take statistics on all public primary and secondary schools and assess the teaching and learning environment.
He said that for education to be saved from collapse, reviewing education policy by his government is a must.
The candidate, who spoke with confidence and vigor, added that his government will not embark on the expulsion of any teacher but transfer them to where they fit in and swap them with the passionate ones.
Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada pointed out that in every discipline and civil service there are people who perform their duties with passion, but they are not lucky to be placed where they suit most.
He cited an example of a civil servant who was passionate about teaching and could do better at teaching but was dumped at the office of the Head of Service or Ministry of Agriculture. “The moment we identify them, we will swap them with civil servants who are passionate about going only through the files and who are always enjoying office work,” said Sha’aban Sharada.
The Action Democratic Party candidate said he has the best plan for education, including improving the state of the teaching and learning materials in Kano’s higher institutions.
In a statement issued by Gubernatorial Campaign Council Spokesperson Abbas Yushau Yusuf, the candidate also pledged to introduce vocational training in primary and secondary schools for students to learn various trades of their choice for self-reliance.
