Girls’ abduction: Principals to meet over students safety
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.
