UN CALLS FOR FAST TRACK OF DOMESTICATION OF POLICIES ON SAFE SCHOOLS.
Written by admin on September 10, 2020
The United Nations has called on Nigerian States to fast track the domestication of the policies on safe schools in line with the safe school declaration which Nigeria endorsed.
President Muhammadu Buhari in March 20, 2020 ratified the Safe Schools Declaration (SSD) during the weekly FEC meeting.
UNICEF Education Officer, Judith Giwa-Amu said President Buhari had already given an approval for its domestication in states.
The SSD is an intergovernmental political commitment that provides countries with the opportunity to express support for protecting students, teachers, schools, and universities from attack during times of armed conflict.
