Yusuf Okbele, Education Secretary (ES), Lafia East Development Area, said 64 Primary Schools were affected by the recent herdsmen/farmers crisis in the area.
Mr Okbele disclosed this on Friday in Lafia, Nasarawa State during a step-down training of teachers in the area.
According to him, the recent crisis in the Southern Senatorial Zone of the state has affected activities in 64 primary schools in Lafia East.
He explained that the government was making serious efforts for activities to resume, while activities had commenced in some of the schools.
“The efforts of the government with the support of all stakeholders have yielded results, because normalcy has returned in some of the affected communities.
“All parents should send their children to schools as academic activities had since commenced,” he said.
He called on all teachers in the area to take their jobs seriously in order to impact positively on the pupils.
Okbele also urged Head Teachers of all schools in the area to ensure that their staff write lesson notes, plan their lessons and observe time for every lesson.
He promised to step up supervision to all schools by deploying supervisors to move round every day to ensure better service delivery.
