Thursday 25th November 2021: As the rising wave of Insecurity in Nigeria continue to tear the nation apart, the registrar of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Olusegun Ajiboye, has suggested the deployment of officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to schools to help against the violent attacks on schools.
Mr Ajiboye suggested this on Wednesday while taking part as a guest at the third edition of “The Dialogue,” a virtual interactive stakeholders’ forum led by a veteran broadcaster, Bimbo Oloyede.
Mr Ajiboye, who informed the audience of the ongoing efforts of the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) to develop a curriculum for schools on security studies, also emphasised the need for martial arts training for teachers and students across Nigeria for personal safety and defence.
He said; “The new curriculum that has just been developed on security education for the country focuses on security studies to be taught in the ambit of social studies and some other subjects.
“Also, the civil defence corps will be more apt in monitoring and policing our school(s) better, they will serve the right purpose if they are deployed to our schools to work. Martial art training is important for teachers and students for the betterment of our country.”
