Governor Masari’s Son Grad­u­ates From Pub­lic School in Katsina
…As Daugh­ter Trans­ferred on Health Grounds

Of the two chil­dren of Katsina State Gov­er­nor Aminu Masari who were en­rolled at Fam­ily Sup­port Pro­gram Nurs­ery, Pri­mary and Sec­ondary Schools, a pub­lic school in Katsina, the el­dest, Bashir (Baffa) Aminu Masari has com­pleted his ed­u­ca­tion af­ter spend­ing two years, it was gath­ered.

Bashir joined the school in SS2 and com­pleted his stud­ies af­ter tak­ing his se­nior school cer­tifi­cate ex­am­i­na­tion (SSCE).

His sis­ter, Fa­tima was how­ever trans­ferred on health grounds af­ter her Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion Cer­tifi­cate Ex­am­i­na­tion (BECE) in JSS3 to an­other school in Abuja. Daily Trust on Sun­day find­ings shows that she was in the school for three years be­fore her trans­fer.

Con­firm­ing this, the ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor and prin­ci­pal of the school, Mrs. R. Mukhtar, said “They were here; Baffa did his fi­nals af­ter two years here, while Ummi was trans­ferred on health grounds af­ter her BECE ex­am­i­na­tions”

Sources close to the fam­ily con­firmed to Daily Trust on Sun­day that Ummi was moved to Abuja, to en­able her to be with her mother Zakiyyah Aminu Masari, one of the three wives of the gov­er­nor. “Her mother is based in Abuja and is in the best po­si­tion to take care of her due to her health con­di­tion,” the source said.

It would be re­called that the state gov­er­nor had in one of his cam­paign prom­ises pledges to en­roll his chil­dren in pub­lic schools and pa­tro­n­ise govern­ment hospi­tals. To ful­fill the prom­ises he made to elec­torate, Masari en­rolled two of his chil­dren at the Fam­ily Sup­port School in 2016.

Even though pub­lic, the school boasts of the best fa­cil­i­ties and teach­ers as it is run in a semi-pri­vate part­ner­ship with lit­tle amount paid as fees. An in­sider told our cor­re­spon­dent, that no sooner had wards of govern­ment of­fi­cials and ap­pointees en­rolled than more teach­ers were em­ployed and com­puter cour­ses were in­tro­duced, in ad­di­tion to in­cen­tives and ‘spe­cial care’.

The gov­er­nor had also given a di­rec­tive to his ap­pointees and govern­ment of­fi­cials to also toe the line by mak­ing use of pub­lic schools and hospi­tals in the state.

Our cor­re­spon­dent who vis­ited the school re­ports that a high pres­ence of se­cu­rity per­son­nel was still vis­i­ble even though the gov­er­nor’s chil­dren were no longer study­ing there.

At present, the school is one of the most sought for by par­ents and stu­dents in the state. More struc­tures were also built.

Keep­ing to his words that he would pa­tro­n­ise pub­lic util­i­ties in the state, Gov­er­nor Masari, in 2017, used the fa­cil­i­ties of the govern­ment gen­eral hos­pi­tal when one of his son Baffa was ad­mit­ted to the in­ten­sive care unit(ICU) of the hos­pi­tal. He was treated for an undis­closed ail­ment and dis­charged af­ter treat­ment.

The gov­er­nor was com­mended for keep­ing to his words and also tak­ing his child to a pub­lic hos­pi­tal in­stead of a pri­vate hos­pi­tal or abroad, which he could have eas­ily done with state re­sources at his dis­posal.
