Supervising Minister of Education, Barr. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike has approved the shutting down of five Federal Government Colleges located within the high security risk areas of the North-east geo-political zone.
The schools include: Federal Government Girls College, Munguno, Federal Government College, Potiskum, Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Federal Science and Technical College Lassa and Federal Science and Technical College, Michika.
The Minister approved that candidates registered for WASSCE, NECO SSCE and BECE in FGGC Potiskum should have their examination centres relocated to FGGC Bauchi, while those from FGGC Munguno and FGC Buni Yadi should also be relocated.
He further approved that other students who are affected by the shutting down of the schools, but not writing public examinations be relocated to FGGC Bauchi, FGGC Bajoga, FGC Maiduguri, FSTC Kafanchan and FSTC Dayi. He, however, left the choice of the school to accomodate affected students at the discretion of parents, but limited to the six listed schools.
The Minister once again commiserated with families that lost their children during the unfortunate attack on FGC Buni Yadi. He said the Federal Ministry of Education will continue to collaborate with all stakeholders to improve security around Federal institutions of learning.
