Dear Comrade Olukoya

NAPTOSA empathizes with the Nigerian Union of Teachers, educators and parents of the abducted schoolgirls and is extremely concerned about their safety and wellbeing. NAPTOSA condemns the inhumane and barbaric action of the extremist militant group.

Greater international condemnation was expected, hence NAPTOSA’s call on the Education International (EI) to mobilize support for the release of these Nigerian schoolgirls.

NAPTOSA is reminded of the “Dakar Framework for Action which re-affirmed a commitment to achieving Education for All by the year 2015, and identified six key measurable education goals which aim to meet the learning needs of all children, youth and adults by 2015”.

It is with this in mind that NAPTOSA has appealed to EI to initiate a campaign by reiterating the need for education especially for girls at this juncture.

NAPTOSA reminds you that your children are in our thoughts and prayers and wishes you strength during this difficult time.

 

Kind regards
