Borno inaugurates school for IDPs



Borno State Government has inaugurated primary
school education in the internally displaced persons’
journalists round the camps on Thursday, the
Chairman of Borno State Emergency Management
Agency, Mr. Grema Terab, said the schools were
established to keep children in the camps busy and
abreast of their studies, pending the time they will
return home.
He revealed that at present, volunteer teachers are
brought in to teach in the schools, adding that
displaced teachers from the troubled communities
would also be brought in to take classes.
Terab said, “Since teachers from the troubled
communities are still drawing monthly salaries without
teaching, arrangement is being made to draft them to
the newly established schools in the camps.”
He also said plans were underway to establish
secondary schools in the camps, so that pupils who
were forced to flee their towns would not become
school drop-outs.
Terab said the books and other instructional materials
being used in the camps were donated by the
Universal Basic Education.
Structures in the camps include a kitchen, clinic,
boreholes, classrooms, toilets and a store.
