Kagara: Niger State Government Plans to Reopen Schools

Public schools in Niger State have been instructed by the government to re-open on Monday 29

Schools in the state have been shut for nearly two months following attacks on learning institutions in the north of Nigeria— including the kidnap of 27 students from the Government Science College, Kagara, Niger state on February 10, 2021.

State Commissioner for Education, Hannatu Salihu, announced that schools with day students will resume on March 29, while boarding secondary schools in urban areas will reopen on April 6.

The state also directed public schools to immediately form a formidable Security team, comprising of School Officials, Security Personnel, PTA, SBMC and Vigilante with active community participation to allow for strong security presence in and around the Schools.

Low risk boarding secondary schools in rural areas are to run as day schools during the period and reopen on Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Public day secondary schools in areas of high risk that would run in clusters with selected safe schools in nearby communities would reopen on a later date to be announced after adequate arrangements are concluded.

Students from other communities in the boarding schools that would operate as day schools during the period would be moved to other boarding/day secondary schools in their localities.

All principals have been provided with specific details in respect of the arrangement under (1) – (4). Therefore, they are expected to work under and in collaboration with their zonal directors to ensure compliance in the light of the demands of current security realities.
