Public Secondary Schools to reopen in Borno State September 26

Borno State Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Inuwa Kubo has announced the reopening of Public secondary schools on Monday, September 26th, two years after they were closed due to Boko Haram insurgency.

The public schools were closed in March, 2014, after terrorists attacked a school in neighbouring Yobe.
Borno government reopened the public schools in 2015 but learning could not commence because they had been taken over by Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs.
Kubo, however, said on Monday in Maiduguri said the IDPs occupying the schools had been relocated to allow for resumption of academic activities.
He added that all the structures in the schools had been repaired to provide a conducive environment for teaching and learning.
His statement reads: “I wish to announce that on Sept. 26, all public schools are going to be re-opened. I want to state that government has repaired all the structures damaged by the IDPs in the schools, to ensure comfort for the returning students.
“Parents and guardians should please make sure that they send their children back to school.”
The Commissioner described the actions of proprietors of private schools who took undue advantage of the development to hike their school fees as unfortunate.
“We understand that some of them have taken undue advantage of the closure of public schools to hike school fees; we will not allow the situation to continue.
“We are going to visit the schools to find out how much they are charging and how much they are paying their teachers.” he added.
