Federal Government To Re-open Chibok'sGirls School

Federal government is working hard to reopen Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state where Boko Haram abducted 276 schools in April 2014.

The Vice-Chairman of the Presidential Committee on North-East Initiative, Mr. Tijjani Tumsah, said on Thursday that the government is scheduling the re-opening of the college for normal academic activities in the 2017/2018 session.

Some 276 female students of GGSS, Chibok, located in Borno South Senatorial District, were abducted by members of Boko Haram on April 14, 2014, and 50 of them escaped from their abductors.

Among the remaining 219, the government negotiated the release of 21 by the sect in 2016, while three others escaped on their own.Tumsah said all necessary security measures were being taken to avert a recurrence of the April 2014 incident.

“We intend to finish with the school before next session and make it functional for educational activities to pick up.“We have varieties of programmes, including psycho-social and counselling programmes for women and girls and community engagements.
