“I’m using this medium to appreciate and acknowledge teaching contributions of our great leaders and appeal to the Nigerian Government, traditional rulers and security agencies therefore, to continue to help in fostering peace and harmony in order to help us in the effective discharge of our duties as a student leaders of diverse culture in our dear country Nigeria” Ziya’u Sarki.
More over he said that education is the foundation for expanding opportunities, transforming economics, fighting intolerance, protecting our planet and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Therefore, when education is interrupted, it affects everyone especially students, teachers and families.
