The former governor warned that there will be a rise in the number of children who are not in school as a result of the harmful effects of insecurity on education.

“While insecurity has continued to bear down on every sector of our national existence, its negative impact on education will be more devastating for the nation.

“We are already contending with an army of over 18 million out-of-school children, arising from the closure of schools due to insecurity. Further attacks on schools will only aggravate these numbers, drive more children into the streets, and add to the insecurity situation of the country”, he wrote.
