A feminine rights advocacy group, Girl Child Concerns, has disclosed that not few secondary schools are not disposed to admitting students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, who were rescued after being abducted by the dreaded Islamic set, Boko Haram.
The group’s Board chairperson, Dr Mairo Mandara, made this disclosure in Abuja on Wednesday at a ceremony it organised to celebrate the graduation of 42 Chibok girls and 31 indigent girls drawn from Kaduna, Plateau and Borno States.
The graduands were among the 57, who escaped hours after their abduction.
Mandara recalled that it was an unpalatable experience seeking admission for the girls so as to continue their education.
She said; “it was difficult getting a school for them at the time we took custody of these girls. Schools refused to accept those students out of fear of the consequences that could follow if it is discovered that the girls were in the school.
“In one school, some parents threatened to withdraw their children if we were offered admission. Bethel International Christian Academy, Jos and Ulul Albab Islamic School Katsina gave us succour by not only giving admission to the girls but also created special remedial classes to get the girls up to speed to be able to catch up with others.”
