Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State yesterday unveiled the new Kaduna State Logo.

Mr El-Rufai while unveiling the logo during a Town Hall Meeting for Kaduna Central zone 2 at International Trade Fair Complex in Kaduna, expressed the need to have a new face for Kaduna “from the one that was destroyed by the misrule of the PDP in the state.”

“With the unveiling of the new Logo, the state will no longer use the Federal Government Logo,” he said.

While declaring State of Emergency in the education sector, El-Rufai said his government will soon commence the arrest and prosecution of parents who allow their children to hawk after full implementation of the free primary and secondary education in the state.

“We shall soon commence free feeding of primary school in January 2016, as soon as it is captured in the 2016 budget. The increase in the number of students’ enrollment has also made us to introduce morning and afternoon shift in our schools.”

He added: “Measurement of uniform for both primary and secondary has commenced. After all these, parents have. No excuse to allow their children and ward to hawk. We shall also commence prosecuting airing parents. Whatever we spend on education we shall see its effect in 20 years.”

Mr El-Rufai had before his election, declared that his children will also attend public school.

During the Town Hall meeting, the governor, lamented that, the state could not fill its admission quota at Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA).

He said the, Town Hall Meeting will convene every month in order to give people the opportunity to ask questions and to advice government on way forward for the state.

In his opening remarks, Mr Uba Sani, Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Affairs, said government is not about giving people money or building castle in the air, adding: “Good work will always be noticed and appreciated despite those who want the state to remain backward.”
