Only 10,000 children have returned to schools in Gujba LG

By - - [General ]
The chairman of Gujba local government, Alhaji Kyari Batarama, has said only 10,000 students were enrolled in both primary and junior secondary schools in the area this academic year.

He told Kanem Trust in an interview that the figure was achieved after much effort and persuasion by council officials.

There are 36 Primary schools and six Junior Secondary Schools in the area, which together enrol more than 40,000 pupils.

“The senior secondary schools are yet to commence because of apathy on the side of parents. We still plead with the parents to take their children off streets and enrol them into schools,” he said.

The chairman said the government had taken steps towards reviving education in the area but parents were not cooperating.

He said that many schools have been renovated and the council had facilitated the return of many displaced persons to their ancestral homes but they refused to enrol their children into schools.

Batarama explained that, at the peak of Boko Haram insurgency, many people fled to neighboring states and towns in Yobe state which forced their children out of schools.

He noted that, after a lot of consultations, appeals and persuasion some parents decided to return with their children and enrolled them into schools.

He said the primary objective of his administration was to ensure all Gujba children are enrolled into primary and secondary schools.

“I want to call on parents and well meaning citizens, who know the importance of education, to come to the aid of government and the children to ensure full compliance,” he said.

He said to make the schools and returnee communities habitable, government had spent millions of naira to overhaul boreholes destroyed by the insurgents.

“We are now spending N1,170,000 monthly for the maintenance of the boreholes across the council,” he added.
