Parents of Rimi College students in Kaduna have rejected the resolution of Kaduna State Government to relocate students of the college to a school at Unguwan Kudu, Kabala area of Kaduna.
Their decision was taken at a meeting convened by the state Ministry of Education with the Parent Teachers Association of the college to brief them of the development which ended in a deadlock, with the parents saying they could not afford the daily transportation fares of their children to the new school.
They also expressed worry over the safety of their children in the new school.
The state government had earlier relocated boarding students of Government Girls Secondary School Kawo whose hostels were razed on Sunday.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Phibi Sukai-Yayi, however assured the parents that the measure was temporary, to enable the government reconstruct the burnt hostels and upgrade existing facilities.
