The United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, says only 43 per cent of the minimum standard for safe schools is being met in about 6,000 assessed schools in Nigeria.

Ms. Cristian Munduate, the UNICEF Nigeria Country Representative, stated this in her message to mark the 2024 International Day of Education with the theme: “Learning for Lasting Peace”, on Wednesday.

She recognised Nigeria’s commitment to creating safe school environments by endorsing the Safe Schools Declaration and developing the Minimum Standards for Safe Schools, saying that there was the need for further progress and collective responsibility in safeguarding the educational environment.
