Katsina: “Terrorists have taken over schools, forced them to shut down” – Gov. Radda

Katsina State Governor, Umar Dikko Radda, has lamented that terrorists have taken over a number of schools across the State.

Radda made this known at the 7th and 8th combined convocation ceremony of the Federal University, Dutsinma (FUDMA), Katsina State over the weekend, while promising that his administration would decimate these terrorists and would not relent.

He explained that his administration established the Katsina State Community Watch Corps to fight insecurity and ensure conducive learning environment for students in the state.

According to him, “There is no education without security. Many of our frontline local government areas have had their schools closed due to banditry and in some cases; schools have become dens for bandits. This is why we established the Katsina State Community Watch Corps to fight insecurity and create a foundation for our youth to learn and thrive.

“My administration has made out-of-school children a main priority and we will continue to work with all partners to reduce the numbers. We will also work with religious schools to provide academic tools for students in a bid to prepare them for the world ahead. All the actions we have embarked upon as government are designed to lay the foundation for a brighter future for the people of Katsina”.

“In addition to education, we have focused on agriculture, health and social care, MSMES, and internally generated revenue”, he further stated.
