|Borno state Governor, Kashim Shettima
are finally due to re open.
The Borno State Government, today in Maiduguri said that public schools in the state will re open in November.
Public schools were closed down on March 14 after deadly attacks by Boko Haram insurgents on schools in neighbouring Yobe. But the Chairman, Committee on the Resuscitation of Primary School Education, Mohammed Dongel, now says schools would reopen in the first or the second week of the month.
“We hope to reopen all public schools by the first or second week of November God willing. By then we hope to have put in place all necessary infrastructure and instruction materials for conducive teaching and learning. We plan to introduce various measures to encourage parents to send their children and wards to school. The measures will also help entice pupils who are enrolled in school to remain,” he said.Personally i don't think Borno State is safe enough yet for schools to be re opened,but hey,i'm not the government.Nothing has happened security wise to instill trust that students will be safe.Whos is to say there won't be another Chibok girl scenario?
