Niger shuts down all public secondary schools: Insecurity

To assess the threat of insecurity and its impact on schools, the Niger Ministry of Education has directed the closure of all public secondary schools for two weeks.

The schools are to close from Friday, March 12th to Friday, March 26th, 2021.

According to Commissioner of Education, Hajiya Hannatu Salihu, the closure was to give relevant security agencies the time and opportunity to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of all public secondary schools.

This decision was taken during an emergency consultative meeting with leadership of the Association of the Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), Association of Model Islamic Schools (AMIS), Executive Chairman, Niger State Universal Basic Education Board (NSUBEB), Heads of Education Agencies, Directors of the Ministry and other stakeholders of the sector.
