Academic activities resume fully at GGSTC, Dapchi, nine months after abduction saga

Academic activities have resumed in full force at the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, where Boko Haram insurgents abducted 110 schoolgirls on February 19.

The principal of the school, Hajiya Adama Abdulkarim, told News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Dapchi that at least 80 per cent of the students and teachers had resumed.

“More than 80 per cent of the students have resumed, likewise the teachers. Almost all of them are around except for very few who are away for one or more official reasons.

“School activities are moving smoothly as they were before the ugly incident,” she said.

Abdulkarim said that the school had taken some measures to alleviate the students’ trauma to make for effective learning.

“Before the incident, there were no matrons in the school, but now, with the help of the local government and permission of the ministry of education, we have been able to source for six elderly women.

“We instructed the matrons to always be around, especially in the hostels, after class hours, to comfort and encourage the students.

“On the side of the government, the military, police and civil defence personnel have been around the school at all times,” she said.

The principal told NAN that the state government had created admission spaces in the school for 700 students in the next academic session.

“By the grace of God, the incident will not happen again,” she said.

She called on governments, non-governmental organisations and public-spirited individuals to assist the school.

“The school needs to be rehabilitated with essential facilities that will attract parents to bring their children to learn and actualise their dreams,” the principal said.

One of the students, Miss Aisha Kolo, told NAN that the students were being well taken care of. She called on students yet to resume as a result of the abduction, to return.

She prayed that such an incident would not happen anymore.

NAN reports that the insurgents released the abducted 110 students a month later, with the exception of Miss Leah Sharibu and five others who reportedly died in captivity.

The insurgents reportedly held Sharibu back for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.
