UNICEF Urges Immediate Action to Bolster School Safety in Nigeria

As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to commemorate the International Day of Education, UNICEF has commended the significant progress made in providing access to education for 7.2 million children in humanitarian settings across Nigeria.

The commendation is contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, by the Communications Officer, UNICEF Nigeria, Safiya Akau.

Akau quoted Cristian Munduate, UNICEF Nigeria Country Representative, as having commended the collaborative efforts of the government, donors, and partners, calling for concerted efforts to enhance school safety in Nigeria.

According to Akua, UNICEF Nigeria Country Representative, said Nigeria had shown a commitment to creating safe school environments by endorsing the Safe Schools Declaration and developing the Minimum Standards for Safe Schools.

While she, however, noted that there is room for further progress, she also called for collective responsibility in safeguarding the educational environment for every child.
