Adamu said: “Right from Nigeria’s independence, I want to believe that this is the first time Kaduna state government is making massive employment in our history.
“In one agency, KASTELA, the state government had employed over 2,600 personnel and we have already secured permission to employ additional 1,700 soon.
“We are currently doing same is various agencies, including KADIPA and KADGIS among other agencies in the state.’’
On the 22,000 teachers sacked by the government, Adamu said the administration would replace them with 25, 000 qualified ones.
“The teachers sacked have no business in the classroom,” he stressed, adding that the government was focused on laying a solid foundation at the primary level for children of the poor to acquire sound education.
“By sanitizing our primary schools, children of the poor would acquire the right education that would add value to their lives and the society and become something worthwhile in the future.
“No any sensible government will allow the way things are going in the education sector to continue.
“A situation where a primary school teacher and graduate of geography can’t even spell geography correctly, and you expect the government to allow such person to continue teaching, is not possible.
