Over 1,500 Kaduna Schools re Without Fence Gov Sani Raises Alarm

Kaduna State governor, Senator Uba Sani, has said over 1,500 schools in the eight frontline local government areas of the state, do not have fences.

The governor stated this while addressing stakeholders from the 23 local government areas of the state.

The governor, however, disclosed that as part of efforts to complement the government’s commitment to implementing the Safe School Initiative, prominent Kaduna-based business moguls, Alhaji Adamu Atta of Fifth Chucker and Alhaji Bukar Shettima of Barbados, are to build fences for 100 schools.

He explained that his administration is focusing on education because they believe education is the greatest enabler.

“But because of the unfortunate incident that happened in Kuriga, where about 137 children were kidnapped, we saw the situation of the school, then we embarked on the assessment of all our schools, particularly our junior secondary schools and primary schools, and the result was very pathetic, because before us today in Kaduna State, we have over 1,500 schools that need to be fenced in line with Safe School Initiative,” he said.

Sani, who also identified security as the most important area of focus for his administration, applauded the service chiefs, particularly the Chief of Defence Staff, for establishing a military base in Kachia.
