Girls’ ab­duc­tion: Prin­ci­pals to meet over stu­dents safety

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man A. Bello, Lokoja

Fol­low­ing the ab­duc­tion of stu­dents by gun­men, Kogi State chap­ter of the All Nigeria Con­fed­er­a­tion of Prin­ci­pals of Sec­ondary Schools (ANCOPSS) said it will hold a meet­ing with par­ents and teach­ers to dis­cuss ways of pro­tect­ing stu­dents.

The ANCOPSS state pres­i­dent, Dr Ibrahim Ade Muf­tau, dis­closed this yes­ter­day in Lokoja, dur­ing his ac­cep­tance speech af­ter the in­au­gu­ra­tion of a new ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil.

He said with the in­se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try, es­pe­cially the re­cent ab­duc­tion of stu­dents, there was need to take proac­tive mea­sures to en­sure that the in­sur­gents do not have ac­cess to schools.

He urged stu­dents to re­port any sus­pi­cious move­ments in and around their schools to their teach­ers, while stress­ing the need for govern­ment to build pa­ram­e­ter fences round schools.

Dr. Muf­tau, who de­cried the de­plorable con­di­tion of sec­ondary schools in the state, called on the state govern­ment to do some­thing about the sit­u­a­tion and to also re­cruit qual­i­fied teach­ers to check ex­am­i­na­tion mal­prac­tice.
