UNICEF URGES IMMEDIATE ACTION TO BOLSTER SAFETY IN SCHOOLS

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 on Wednesday by Safiya Akau, Communications Officer, UNICEF Nigeria.
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.
Munduate said that Nigeria had shown a commitment to creating safe school environments by endorsing the Safe Schools Declaration and developing the Minimum Standards for Safe Schools.
She, however, said there is room for further progress, while also calling for collective responsibility in safeguarding the educational environment for every child.
