Kwara Government Rejects Educational School Materials Donated By Bukola Saraki

It was alleged that the books had pictures and other insignias of Bukola Saraki.

Kwara State Government has rejected educational school materials donated by the Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for school and students of the state.

Yakub Aliagan, the press secretary at the Kwara State Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, said the educational materials violate basic rules, noting that it was wrong for students’ learning materials to carry the image or insignia of any personality.

He said in a statement: “The appropriate thing to do is to send those materials to the Ministry of Education, which has a statutory duty of vetting learning materials for quality control and then approve such for distribution. Not doing so was a violation of a basic rule, which is key to strengthening our institutions and keeping standards.

“Besides, it is wrong for anyone to emblazon their images or personal logos on instructional materials made with public resources for distribution in public schools. The said materials were some sort of constituency projects, which had been approved and funded by the federal government of Nigeria.

“It is instructive to note that the Kwara State Ministry of Education recently approached Governor AbdulRahmanAbdulRazaq to mass-produce instructional materials with his picture emblazoned on them ahead of school resumption and the governor rejected the proposal on the ground that there should be no personalization of projects executed with public funds,”
