Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Southern Kaduna led by the party’s Zonal Chairman, Hon. Luka Shemang have condemned the continued closures of schools in the area by the state government.
The APC leaders who met with members of Kaduna State House of Assembly to discuss the issues of insecurity and other problems facing the zone, especially the education sector lamented that the shutting of the schools in the communities affected by the recurring bloody crises was inimical to the development of the zone.
Shemang therefore urged the lawmakers to prevail over Governor Nasir El-Rufai to consider reopening the schools without further delay.
He said that the closure of tertiary institutions in Southern Kaduna during the heat of the crisis was done in good fate the present situation does not warrant their continued closure.
The APC chief therefore appealed to the governor to reopen the schools so that the students, who could be used as tools to foment trouble by mischief makers can resume their studies.
Shemang , who led eight local government chairmen and other party leaders to the House, said that the visit was to discuss with them how to find lasting solutions to frequent attacks and killings in Southern Kaduna.
