The national body had ordered pupils in public primary and secondary to stay at home to express NUT’s concern on the
Ilekoya noted that it became expedient for government at all levels to ensure quick release of these girls, else there wouldn’t be anything worth celebrating on May 27,
Children’s Day. He said, “Government must stop the incessant killings of
Nigerians. A total of 173 teachers have been killed by the Boko Haram insurgents in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states.
“We are also concerned about the abducted Chibok girls.
The abduction of the girls is nothing but a stumbling block to the realisation of the Millennium Development goals on
education by 2015.”
Ilekoya, who commended the international community for rising up against terror, called on the government to provide adequate security in schools and make the learning and teaching environment conducive.
With members displaying placards with inscriptions such as ‘Nigeria keep moving, victory is certain over Boko
Haram’, ‘Enough is enough’ and ‘Bring back our girls’ among others, Ilekoya said the federal and state governments should pay adequate compensation to the
families of the slain teachers.
He said, “It is also important to take insurance cover for both pupils and teachers in the vulnerable political
environment in the country.”
