Insecurity: Girl-child Education Is Being Threatened In The North – Lawan

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has stated that insecurity in the northern part of Nigeria was already affecting the disposition of young people, especially girls, towards education.

Disclosing this on Saturday, he stated that “It is a very bad development that education is suffering especially with so much kidnapping of school children especially the girl child. In northern Nigeria, education has always been a problem and it is getting worse with this kind of abduction of school children and even those in tertiary institutions.”

Lawan said, “I believe we should continue to fight insurgency, banditry for us to restore normalcy in our country and for our country to make progress. It is a challenge but I believe that it is for all of us, the federal, the state and of course the local government and ethnic groups across the country.”

He also made it known that, “This is a situation that needs all hands on deck, regardless of what we believe in. We all need to survive first before we achieve any excellence and I believe that we can do so well, we can reverse the current trends of insecurity in our country.”
