The delegation was drawn from Education, justice, NERDC, MoD, human rights and women affairs. We held workshops with govt/civil society working in education, emergencies, soldiers from 7th Division of Nigerian Army, Meeting With GOC. Gen. Bulama Biu, visited community and IPD Camp schools in Maiduguri and konduga and a tour of new model schools courtesy of the commissioner of education (7th Division Nigeria Army) and MoD for engaging with EIEWGN for the past 18 months on the combat and non- combat role of military in protecting education from attack.
In addition, the NA. approved security on the outskirts. Most especially we thank the GOC. For making the women available to attend the SSD sensitization on what is expected of them then given the recent FEC approval.
The number of positive news an challenges that will aid the policy and implementation framework. Lastly, before we left Borno, 7th division implemented some encouraging SSD policy changes about military teachers in classroom and their weaponry.
