Bauch Secondary Schools Students Stage Street Protest

Bauchi State Commissioner for Education, Dr Aliyu Tilde, had announced that the state government had concluded plans to separate male and female students in secondary schools in the state.

Tilde, who addressed reporters after a State Executive Council (SEC) meeting in Bauchi, said that the separation of the sexes policy would be executed whenever and wherever it was possible.

He explained that the decision was arrived at in order to address moral decadence, which he observed had become prevalent among students of secondary schools.

The commissioner added that private schools would take a cue from the initiative and separate their males attending their academic activities in one institution and the females in another.

“We came up with an idea, let us extend that 1978 abrogation of core education policy to cover our day secondary schools as well, wherever and whenever it is possible,” Tilde had said.

“Wherever is possible is talking about the geography and whenever is possible is talking about the distribution in time. That is, maybe it is possible tomorrow or not in terms of separating them completely.”

But when schools resumed on Monday, students staged a protest around Kofar Wambai Secondary School in the state capital, asking the government to halt the initiative.

It was gathered that the protest, organized by male students, grounded commercial activities along some roads in the metropolis as the students marched to the emir’s palace and the ministry of education to register their annoyance.
