NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT ORDERS CLOSURE OF ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE STATE FOR TWO WEEKS

The Niger State Government has ordered the closure of all public secondary schools in the State for two weeks.

 

The State’s Commissioner for Education, Hajiya Hannatu Jibrin Salihu, made the announcement late on Thursday.

 

She said the decision was made after a meeting between the State Government and officials from various security agencies in the State.

 

The Commissioner noted that the schools would be closed from Friday, March 12 to Friday, March 26, 2021.

 

Though 22 secondary schools (11 Day and 11 Boarding Schools) have earlier been closed, she said the two weeks closure of all secondary schools was necessary to give relevant security agencies the time and opportunity to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of all public secondary schools.

 

Recall that in February, bandits invaded a school in Kagara and abducted 27 students, three staff and 12 members of their families.

 

The Kagara abduction occurred barely three months after the kidnapping of over 300 students at Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State.
