A member of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Gudaji, has prompted President Muhammadu Buhari of his campaign pledge of providing free education to all when elected as Nigeria’s president.
Gudaji represents Kazaure federal constituency, he made this noble call while fielding questions from reporters in Dutse.
According to him, it had become necessary as one the federal law makers and a member of the ruling APC to remind the President to urgently fulfill the promise he made to Nigerians during the election campaigns.
His words: “As you might be aware, things will be too much on our President as such he may likely forget with this vital promise he made of providing free education if voted into power.
“There is urgent need to alert him so that parents will stop taking their children to private schools and end up paying exorbitant amount as school fees of their wards.”
He showed concern about the way proprietors of private schools charge high school fees of children, lamenting that some of the schools were yet to provide the required education for children.
He said with the introduction of free education to all the children, parents would get relief and better education.
Gudaji, who charged Nigerians to continue exercising patience as the voted change will come to reality soonest, stated that change would not come overnight as suffering and untold hardship must come first before any enjoyment.
He described leadership of the National Assembly under Dogara as good representations worthy of emulation, saying the speaker was a well-respected politician as he carried everybody along irrespective of political, religious and cultural affiliations.
It will be recalled that during electioneering campaign, President Buhari pledged to provide free education for all if elected into the office of the president.
