Kaduna State Government Has Not Cancelled Easter Holiday – El Rufai. Kaduna Schools Will Not Close Before Easter
Good Friday and Easter Monday are established public holidays, they are mandatory and are declared by the Federal Government.
Pupils and students in Kaduna State will go on Easter Holiday and Good Friday and Easter Monday. It is falsehood and baseless blackmail to suggest that schools must end the second term before Easter.
The school term is not a religious issue. The tendency to place a religious hue on everything is irresponsible. Pupils in Kaduna State will have their Easter break on the prescribed public holidays and return to school to conclude the second term. The curriculum is based on a 12-week term. The schools resumed for second term on 18 January and will complete the 12 weeks in April. Kaduna State will not curtail its school term to 10 weeks. Education cannot be abridged to appease prejudice.
