Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, Wednesday, cautioned the acting Minister of Education, Mr.Nyesom Wike, to watch his tongue while commenting on burning issues relating to education, saying that the sector was not for riff-raffs like him.

According to DAILY POST, while signing into law, the Niger State University of Education Bill at the Government House, Minna, the governor also warned Wike to stay away Niger state.

He said, “I don’t know when he got into education; education is not for riff-raffs".

“Wike should be warned to stay clear of Niger State. If he (Wike) can fight the governor of his state (Rivers), he cannot fight other governors, he should take his time".

Reacting to Governor Aliyu’s statement,Simeon Nwakaudu, special adviser to Wike on media issue said, 
“Wike believes that all Nigerian children deserve access to education, hence he advocated that state governments should invest more in education.

“As a seasoned administrator, lawyer and former secondary school teacher, Wike is passionate about education, hence he has consistently built synergy to develop the sector, working closely with governors at all times.

“Nigerians are conversant with the Almajiri girl child and library projects supervised by the Minister to uplift access to education in the country. He will continue to focus on the onerous task of improving education in the country,” he added.
