By Lawrence Audu

A gathering of 30 Civil Society Organizations, among them Stand Up Nigeria (SUN), has commended the Safe School initiative for bolstering the safety of schoolchildren amid various security threats nationwide.

During the launch of the Safe School Initiative in Lafia, Comrade Sunday Attah, the National Coordinator of SUN, spoke to reporters, urging local communities to rally behind the NSCDC and other security agencies in order to realize the goals of the initiative. The coalition expressed their support for the initiative and applauded Audi for his proactive approach.

He noted that the safe schools programme has become necessary considering the importance of education on human capital development and overall national development, thus making it expedient for government to deploy extraordinary measures to tackle the spate of attacks on school facilities in Nigeria.

Attah commended the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi, for ensuring that more personnel of the Corps are provided with adequate training to implement the safe school initiative.

According to him, one among many of the functions of the National Safe Schools Response coordination Center is to provide forensic evidence-based response coordination in collaboration with security agencies and relevant stakeholders to enhance security for schools and host communities.

The program is to also maintain a standby force at all centers for prevention and quick response to emergencies around schools.

Attah commended President Bola Tinubu for believing in the reforms and discipline the CG Audi, has brought to NSCDC saying it shows the confidence the President has on the NSCDC boss.
