Shekarau asks schools to tighten security

The Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, on Thursday, directed heads of various institutions across the country to ensure maximum security in schools to check possible attacks by hoodlums.

“The issue of security is not the affairs of only Federal, State or local governments or communities but the responsibility of everybody,” he said.

Shekarau, spoke  when he led a Federal Government delegation to the Federal College of Education, Kano which was attacked by insurgents on Wednesday, where over15 persons were killed and 34 others were wounded.

Former governors of Jigawa and Kebbi, Senator Ibrahim Turaki and Senator Adamu Aleiro respectively among others were also on the government’s delegation.

He expressed the hope that security agencies in the state and the country would continue to give useful advices to schools to ensure maximum security in schools.

“We hope heads of various schools across the country will come up with some stringent measures for maximum security in their respective schools and it is unfortunate that the trend we are witnessing is that institutions of learning are being targeted,” he said.

The minister also stressed the need for the college to go back to the drawing board in order to take stringent measures towards enhancing security in the school.

“I believe this incident will not deter our people from pursuing their studies because we see it as a challenge to whoever is concerned to provide maximum security in our schools,” he added.
