A member of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Gudaji, has reminded President Muhammadu Buhari of his campaign promise of providing free education to all when elected as Nigeria’s leader.
Gudaji, who represents Kazaure federal constituency said this while fielding questions from journalists.
“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,” Gudaji said.
“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 said.
Lamenting the high fees collected by private schools, the lawmaker said with the introduction of free education to all the children, parents would get relief and better education.
He charged Nigerians to continue exercising patience as the voted change will come to reality soonest.
He described the leadership of the National Assembly under Dogara as good representations worthy of emulation.
