FG Plans To Re-open Chibok’s Girls School

Federal government is working hard to reopen
Government Girls’ Secondary School (GGSS),
Chibok, Borno state where Boko Haram abducted
276 schools in April 2014. The government is scheduling the re-opening of
the college for normal academic activities in the
2017/2018 session. Osun donates Opon Imo to rescued Chibok School Girls Mr Tijjani Tumsah, the Vice-Chairman of the
Presidential Committee on North-East Initiative,
said on Thursday . Some 276 female students of GGSS, Chibok,
located in Borno South Senatorial District, were
abducted by members of Boko Haram on April 14,
2014, and 50 of them escaped from their
abductors. Among the remaining 219, the government
negotiated the release of 21 by the sect in 2016,
while three others escaped on their own. Tumsah said all necessary security measures were
being taken to avert a recurrence of the April 2014
incident. “ We intend to finish with the school before next
session and make it functional for educational
activities to pick up. “We have varieties of programmes, including
psycho-social and counselling programmes for
women and girls and community engagements. “In terms of the structure itself, the school has to
be fortified in terms of early warning systems to
protect the girls. “A whole lot of issues that have been planned to
ensure the safety and comfort of the students of
the school judging by the previous unfortunate
incident,’’ he said. Tumsah said the committee would implement
relevant programmes that would boost education,
which had suffered a setback through Boko
Haram activities in the North-East.
