Attacks on schools by terrorists and other non-state actors have killed more than 2,295 teachers in the north east between 2009 and 2022.

The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) Registrar Professor Josiah Olusegun Ajiboye confirmed on Friday in Ibadan while delivering a paper at the 2022 National Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT).

He then called for the full implementation of the  Safe  Schools Declarations guidelines endorsed by Nigeria in 2015 and ratified by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

According to him, over 1,500 schools were forced to close due to insurgency and more than 600,000 children have lost access to education.

Stating the way forward, Ajiboye asked federal, state and local education authorities to facilitate the immediate implementation of the National Policy on Safety, Security and Violence Free Schools (NPSSVFS) by making budgetary provisions.

He also called for an increase in domestic education expenditure of 50 per cent for the next two years as committed at the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Education Summit.
