USOSA calls for closure of schools in North Eastern States



The Unity Schools Old Students’ Association (USOSA) on Wednesday, called for the immediate closure of Federal Government Colleges in the North Eastern States of Yobe, Borno and Adamawa.


At a news Conference in Abuja, the President General of the Unity Schools Old Students Association, Alhaji Muhammadu Nuhu-Koko, said this was in view of recurring attacks on students of the schools by the Boko Haram sect.


Alhaji Muhammadu also called for the transfer of all the students in those Colleges to other Federal Unity Colleges in the country to continue their studies.


Another old student, a member of the House of Representatives, Nnenna Elendu- Ukye, observed that the attacks on the schools were capable of destroying the objectives for which they were established.


On his part, the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Professor Chidi Odinkalu, stressed the need for the protection of students to guarantee the nation’s future.


About forty students of the Federal Government College Buni-Yadi in Yobe State, were killed in the early hours of Tuesday when their school was attacked by Militants.
