Dr Mohammed Dongel, Chairman, Committee on the Resuscitation of Primary School Education, Sunday said public schools in Borno State would reopen in the first or the second week of November, 2014.
Dr Dongel made this known at a meeting in Maiduguri, the state capital.
?We hope to reopen all public schools by the first or second week of November God willing. By then we hope to have put in place all necessary infrastructure and instruction materials for conducive teaching and learning,? he said.
?We plan to introduce various measures to encourage parents to send their children and wards to school.
?The measures will also help entice pupils who are enrolled in school to remain,? he said.
It will be recalled that public schools in the state were closed down on March 14, after deadly attacks by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in schools in neighbouring Yobe.
