FCT UBEB, police partner against cultism in schools

Oct, 2021 | By Mohammed Sani Lawal | ||

Apparently irked by the evil of cultism in society, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command has taken the battle to schools in the Territory. Kicking off with Basic schools, the command carried its anti-cultism message first to FCT Universal Basic Education Board (UBEB), last week.

A delegation from the command, led by Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Ogbonnaya Nwoye, met with UBEB Acting Chairman, Dr. Alhassan Sule, as well as top shots of the Board to further forge a path to eradicate the menace in society, beginning with the young impressionable minds in schools. Speaking during the courtesy call, CSP Nwoye said that they were in UBEB to collaborate and partner with the latter for a good channel of communication between schools and the Police Force.

CSP Nwoye said the UBEB will be the channel of information to the schools and in that wise, also requested the Board to appoint a liaison officer to interface with the Command. He further sought assistance in provision of stickers bearing inscriptions such as 'No to cultism' to remind students of the evils of cultism. Other items also needed, Nwoye stated, include T-shirts, posters, handbooks and hand sanitizers.

The CSP also informed the board that the delegation plans to visit a correctional centre with some of the students for the latter to appreciate the harm, dislocation and torment that cultism can cause in the lives of offenders.

Responding, Acting Chairman, FCT UBEB, Dr. Alhassan Sule, thanked the delegation for its wonderful ideas and promised to schedule another meeting where all the Local Education Authority (LEA) Secretaries from the six Area Councils of FCT will attend so that the message of anti-cultism can be made to sink to the grassroots too.

He revealed that apart from creating awareness to the menace, he would appoint desk officers in each LEA on the matter. Dr. Sule charged his guests to itemize their requests and forward to his office for consideration
