Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has showered praises on Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, whose daughter recently graduated from the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
The rights activist said Ngige should be emulated by other leaders in the country, whose children are often sent to study in foreign countries.
He described the decision of Ngige to allow his children study in the country as a true example of patriotism.
“Chris Ngige is proud to showcase his daughter graduating from UNILAG; Other leaders in office will show theirs abroad and preach patriotism to you,” Sani said in a post on his Facebook page on Saturday.
PlatinumPost reports that majority of the governors in the country and ministers in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government have their children schooling abroad.
Recall the picture of the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Abubakar Rasheed and his son at a graduation ceremony in a United Kingdom’s university, elicited massive condemnations from ordinary Nigerians.
Analysts blame regular strikes in the nation’s university system as well as poor facilities as reasons for the preference for foreign education by politicians in the country.
