Niger Closes All Public Secondary Schools

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Niger Ministry of Education has directed the closure of all public secondary schools for two weeks to  tackle  the security  challenges facing the state

All schools  are  to close  from Friday, March 12th to Friday, March 26th, 2021.

According to Commissioner of Education, Hajiya Hannatu Salihu, the closure was to give relevant security agencies the time and opportunity to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of all public secondary schools.

The  decision was  taken  during an emergency consultative meeting with leadership of the Association of the Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), Association of Model Islamic Schools (AMIS), Executive Chairman, Niger State Universal Basic Education Board (NSUBEB), Heads of Education Agencies, Directors of the Ministry and other stakeholders of the sector.

 It  was  gathered  that during the wake of the Kagara school abduction, 22 secondary schools comprising 11 day and 11 boarding schools were closed in local government areas declared hot insecurity zones in the state.

Salihu stated that the comprehensive risk assessment exercise, when concluded, will provide an all-inclusive mechanism and strategies that will restore and guarantee sustainable security and safety of students, school infrastructure, education managers and teachers.

She called for the understanding and support of education actors, parents and communities while reiterating the government’s resolve to leave no stone unturned in ensuring all schools in the state are safe environments for effective teaching and learning.
