Students Bemoan Closure of Borno Schools

Abuja — THE National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has lamented the closure of public schools in Borno State due to recent killings of school children.

The association, in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer Pedro Obi, said education was the best legacy one could offer a child.

The organisation said it would be a disservice to these innocent children of Borno to sit at home while their counterparts in other states of the federation are climbing an all-important ladder of human development.

“We commend the Federal Government for her effort so far in this regard and charge them and all security agencies to intensify the manhunt against these blood thirsty individuals.

“We also call on the Borno State Government, to please look inward for an alternative means to secure these children while they attend their school or better still sponsor their schooling outside the State.”

Obi added that the attendant psychological trauma attached to the closure of the schools is causing more nuisances to the society as many of the children at home can easily be recruited into the terror group.

“To the saboteur in this fight against the insurgents, you should be aware that an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere on this note, NANS calls on all hands to be on deck for the total eradication of this terror group in our society.”
