Commissioner for Education in the state, Musa Inuwa, who said this in a telephone interview with a Punch correspondent on Wednesday, added that the state needs about 3,000 teachers to replace those who were killed or maimed by the insurgents.
He said, “Many communities have been liberated and people are going back to their communities. But, children without parents cannot go back with them because there is nobody they will live with. The intention is to house children without parents by constructing a boarding primary and secondary school. At least, we are going to enroll 1,000 males and 1,000 females. The school is 80 per cent completed and it will take off any moment from now.”
