any parents in Kaduna State have vowed that if necessary security measures are not put in place, their children will stay at home when primary and secondary schools resume.
Both private and public schools in the State were required to reopen on Sunday, September 4, 2022, according to a circular from the Kaduna State Ministry of Education signed by Adama Yahaya.
However, in response to the circular, some parents vowed to oppose the change.
Alh Haruna Danjuma, the President of the Parents Teachers Association of Nigeria (PTAN), had also urged the Federal, State, and heads of security agencies to station security personnel in critical locations on Sunday.
On Sunday night, Madam Dorcas Salisu Umoru told Dialy Post that she was still dealing with the pain of her uncle’s son, who had been kidnapped from Bethel School in Maraban, Kaduna, even though she had paid a ransom to free him.
If the government didn’t offer these students a safe and supportive learning environment, she said, “I cannot make any more mistakes sending my children to school.”
Haruna James declared that he would never permit himself to become entangled in the web.
“I must visit Government Technical College, Malali, to check out the facilities and the security measures before my children enrol there. I cannot exchange my children’s lives with education,” he declared.
Due to the numerous security personnel present in the city, Mrs Mariam Dogo, whose daughters are still in elementary school, thought that students in the Kaduna metropolis might not face many security threats.
She added that the majority of the interior villages were deserted by the residents and urged the State government to increase its security presence there.
