THE ORGANISATION, THEREFORE, CALLED ON GOVERNMENT AT ALL LEVELS TO ENSURE ADEQUATE SECURITY AND 24-HOUR SURVEILLANCE AROUND SCHOOLS IN ORDER NOT TO ESCALATE THE DISRUPTION OF THE ACADEMIC CALENDAR “WHICH IS IN A FRAGILE STATE AS A RESULT OF COVID – 19 PANDEMIC.”

THE SECRETARY-GENERAL OF NUT, DR. MIKE ENE, ISSUED THE STRIKE NOTICE IN A STATEMENT ON TUESDAY IN ABUJA, IN REACTION TO THE ABDUCTION OF OVER 300 STUDENTS IN GOVERNMENT DAY SCIENCE SECONDARY SCHOOL IN KANKARA, KATSINA STATE AND OTHER CASES IN THE COUNTRY.

THE NUT SAID IT WAS HIGHLY DISTURBED BY THE RE-EMERGING INCIDENCE OF SCHOOL INVASION AND ABDUCTION OF TEACHERS AND STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY’S EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS.
