A Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain (PDP), in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna State, Dr. Mohammad Uwawamaka Thursday, faulted the sacking of over 2000 primary school teachers by the Kaduna State Government.
He said the sacking of teachers, means denying them their means of livelihood, which is worst than kidnapping.
He said kidnappers may pity the kidnapped victim and release him after payment of ransom, but once you are sacked, for life, you may not be opportune to secure the same job in the state again, even to pay your entitlement, becomes a problem.
“Without a job, and no payment of your gratuities and pension, sickness sets in, BP rises, financial hardship sets in, and the person begins dying while alive. He becomes useless to himself and his family before he finally gives up the ghost,” he said
Dr. Uwawamaka who said Governor El-Rufai’s government in the state, is adding more injuries to the pains he had created in the state, noted that with the sack of those teachers, El-Rufai has again created room for criminals, bandits and all forms of evil in the state.
Dr. Uwawamaka who wondered how the sacked teachers will survive said it is even difficult for those working to survive, talk more of those without jobs at this difficult time of inflation, food scarcity and lack.
He noted that Governor El-Rufai has forgotten that whatever decision he takes, positive or negative will have a direct bearing on the 2023 general election.
” It’s a difficult task for every household to survive in this period of inflation, and scarcity, yet, someone, somewhere is there sacking workers for unjustified reasons.” He said
