The Bauchi State Government has ordered immediate closure of Sa’adu Zungur model primary and secondary school, Bauchi following the report that some students of the school conducted mass wedding among themselves within the school.
Male students of the school were
reported to have paid token sums of
N500 as dowry to their female counterparts as precondition for the
mass wedding. The classmates of both the ‘grooms and brides’ who were the wedding guests were reported to have contributed money to purchase snacks being consumed at the wedding ceremony.
Although male and female students in the school study in separate classes, the attention of the teachers were drawn to the illegal mass wedding when one Senior Secondary School two student (name withheld) organised an illegal wedding ceremony at a free classroom, where the teachers heard cheers and noise that indicated a celebration. This made the teachers to rush to the venue where the cheers and noise emanated from and discovered that a wedding ceremony was taking place between the two students. The matter was then reported to the school Principal, Mallam Ahmed Zailani who also consulted the state Ministry of
Education on the appropriate action to be taken against the erring boys and girls, the development that led to the instant closure of both the primary and secondary sections of the school. Commenting on the incident in a press statement issued by his Special Assistant on communication, Yakubu Adamu, the state Deputy Governor and Commissioner of Education, Engineer Nuhu Gidado who attributed the children’s illegal marriages
to the threats of moral decadence in the society, said he had directed the
immediate closure of the school on
Friday, March 10, 2017 after being
notified about the issue. A committee which comprises all directors in the State Ministry of Education, the school authority, teachers as well as the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) has been set up to investigate the matter and come up with a detailed and sincere report before the school would be re- opened.
Sa’adu Zungur is a multi-billion naira
secondary school constructed by former Governor Isa Yuguda with the aim of boosting social behavioural change among youths.
