Body calls for urgent protection of students

education_for_allThe Society for Family and Social Protection in Nigeria (SFSP) has called on governments in the country to prioritize the significance of students’ safety and wellbeing for effective learning in all school settings across the Federation.

 

President of the organisation, Dr Abiola Tilley-Gyado made the call in a statement issued in Abuja.

She urged the government to double up efforts to ensure schools in the country become safe places where every family can educate its children, teach, and learn, regardless of gender identity, ethnicity or religious beliefs.

According to her, the Chibok experience has further exposed the need to prioritize issues of girl child education while also ensuring that no one is left behind as the country moves towards achieving the Education for All (EFA) goals.

“We must learn from evidence as we strive to bring back the Chibok girls and shape a new global sustainable development agenda that takes us beyond 2015,” Dr Tilley-Gyado stated.

Quoting the 2014 Global Education Monitoring Report, Tilley-Gyado said “Nigeria’s out-of-school population has grown by 3.4 million, making it the fourth country with the highest rate of out-of-school population, the country therefore no doubt has made less progress or at best regressed from achieving universal primary education by 2015”
