Perennial attacks on schools and abduction of schoolchildren may worsen illiteracy- SSANU

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities has warned that the perennial attacks on schools and abduction of schoolchildren may worsen illiteracy in the country as many parents and guardians may withdraw their children and wards from schools.


The union also said the abductions could add to the 13.5 million out-of-school children in the country and further threaten the education system, which it described as the bedrock of national development.


SSANU, in a communiqué issued at the end of its 40th National Executive Council meeting held from September 8 to 10, 2021, at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, Nasarawa State, by its National President, Mohammed Ibrahim, called on the Federal Government to urgently address the slide by strengthening the security agencies.
