The Borno State Government on Monday said it is set to re-open public secondary schools next week after they were closed for 2 years due to the Boko Haram insurgency.
This was revealed by the state’s Commissioner of Education, Inuwa Kubo while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Kubo said the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who have been occupying the schools have relocated.
He said, “I wish to announce that on Sept. 26, all public schools are going to be re-opened.
“I want to state that government has repaired all the structures damaged by the IDPs in the schools, to ensure comfort for the returning students.
“Parents and guardians should please make sure that they send their children back to school.”
The schools were shut in 2014 after an attack on a secondary school in Yobe.
