“We have introduced policies that are impacting education which will attract public schools to the middle and upper class.”
The affected school, Noble Kids Academy, has been ordered to close indefinitely and its operational licence withdrawn.
“We have liaised with security operatives in the state as well as communities and traditional leaders to ensure the safety of the students.”
The schools reopened on January 10, for the second term 2021 academic session across 20 local government areas.
“As we have reduced the age for eligibility to contest those offices, so also, we should increase the minimum educational requirement.”
All schools in the state were shut down on September 1, 2021, when bandits abducted 80 students and three teachers from the Government Day Secondary School.
“The students have undergone medical checks and they were all found to be in good condition to immediately resume their studies.”
The group said the neglect and poor funding of universities by governors was detrimental to teaching and research.
The students were kidnapped at Mararraba, a community close to the institution’s campus, on Thursday, January 13, at 11:30 p.m.
The UNN registrar explained that the screening earlier scheduled to start on January 17 would now commence on January 25 and end 29.
