Zamfara State Government has directed that all boarding schools earlier closed due to insecurity be reopened, but now as day schools and this is with immediate effect.
The government says this will enable students from boarding schools earlier closed to attend classes at the nearest day schools in their community.
The affected boarding schools should reopen as day schools to serve students within their immediate environment
The state Commissioner for education says the system will be boys to boys and girls to girls in schools, charging all affected students to maintain their former school uniforms.
He warned that no Principal is allowed to collect new registration or charge any levy from the students.
A new admission register is to be opened separately to accommodate the transferred students in their appropriate classes.
Boarding schools in Zamfara state were shut down in December last year following the abduction of Students of the Government Secondary school Kankara in Katsina State.
