Kaduna has set the date for school resumption across the state, after weeks of closure due to escalating bandits’ attacks on educational facilities.

Commissioner of Education, Dr Shehu Muhammad, made the disclosure ‎while participating in a virtual workshop the Education Writers’ Association of Nigeria organised.

Shehu ‎said the schools will resume the first term for the 2021/2022 academic calendar in phases at the set date, starting from September 12.

According to him, the state has worked out strategies towards ensuring the completion of the third term through online platforms.

The violence has yet to die down.

And it is not clear yet what parents who withdrew ther children in the middle of bandits’ attack will return them without any visible security strategy by the state.

Hundreds of school pupils were kidnapped from schools and held hostage for months in Kaduna in July.
