Zamfara: Residents RUE Continuous Closure Of 75 Girls’ Secondary Schools

Tongues have started wagging over the continued closure of 75 Secondary Schools in Zamfara state.

This is more worrisome, especially with the UNICEF raising an alarm over the number of out of school children, especially girls, in the state.

Speaking with Newsmen in Gusau, an academic, Mansur Jibo said that the continued closure of the schools was a bad development.

Jibo maintained that the main reason of the state government for closing the schools had been defeated as terror attacks continued in the state unabated, saying that policy makers would not have allowed the schools to remain closed if their children were involved.

According to him, the closure of the schools cannot produce any beneficial result in the education sector, stressing that the action had seen many young people roaming the streets, with many of them exposed to rape.

He called on the federal and the state government, to as a matter of urgency, design formidable strategies towards ending the problem.
