Governor Aminu Bello Masari said his government would adopt workable security measures for before the reopening of all boarding schools across the state.
The Governor who made this known in an interview some selected newsmen also stressed that his administration would not be defeated by bandits.
This, he said, was borne out of his administration’s resolve to ensure the safety of children everywhere, especially within the school environment, from incessant attacks by bandits and kidnappers.
Masari said: “We are working on the physical security of the school hostels across the state and we have not completed that. We are fully securing the dormitories with all what you can think of. It is after the completion of securing the dormitories that we can say we have taken what is humanly possible to provide the security and return the students to boarding schools.
“We cannot allow ourselves to be defeated and our children must go back to school as soon as possible. In fact, all the security arrangements will be completed in two weeks.”
