Ganduje’s hyper reaction

Our social decay has been going on for decades such that one often starts to doubt as to what constitutes normal or expected behaviour. Politically, you can no longer hold politicians to account. It seems political leaders are now monarchs and their actions beyond reproach.

The murder of little Hanifa shocked many to the bones. With her cute photos splashed across many media platforms, she entered many hearts because she did not deserve to die the way she did.

Ganduje’s government felt compelled to show that it was up and about in order to look responsible. But that policy looks uninformed when it went to the level of suspending the licenses of all private schools.

May be more explanation followed as to the exact implication of the suspension, but my understanding of it being that without valid license all private schools must close. And private schools may include universities, colleges of education,  nursing and the likes.

Kano State Government should have said it would evaluate all private schools in order to weed out undesirable ones after it might have developed template for that.

And we should not rule out the possibility of this set of politicians trying to capitalise on this tragedy in order to get at political opponents. Our politicians can be that vile.

Due to governments’ inability to provide schools, private individuals see schools as business opportunity. Imagine the case of this culprit under prosecution that he is living in  a house the rent of which he cannot pay, yet he set up a ‘school’ instead of being an employee in a respectable school.

Our political leadership is really underperforming, such that society is left at the mercy of marauders, either as bandits or murderers.
