The festive period has ended and we are already in the new year of which many students who went for the holiday will be returning to school in different parts of the country, including the North.
The insecurity in the country is alarming and has spread like wildfire affecting every region.
It is crucial that those who school in the North be informed as they are returning for the semester or another new session.
One of the pieces of advice is that they should be careful about the type of vehicle and the time they board it.
Kidnapping and banditry activities spanned through 2021 we hope that in this new year the spike will nosedive.
They have to watch the type of vehicle they board and the hours they do.
Boarding a faulty vehicle or the one in which the driver may be a drunkard or full of suspicion should be avoided. And one thing you should stop doing it, do not board a vehicle that is not in the park.
Many students would want to take a vehicle that operates outside the park as it is cheaper. Think about your safety as such vehicles are not registered and without the manifest.
This poses a great risk if not bought by road safety or probably are criminals who operate the vehicle.
Taking a night bus or car to school in the North can endanger your safety. Bandits and kidnappers are on the loose.
You have a role to play in your safety.
It is better t take a vehicle in the morning or when the day is still bright.
The distance of your journey is equally important. If it would take more than twelve hours of daylight.
It would be advisable you break your journey and then continue the next day or so. For example, a student traveling from Benin to Maiduguri will have to break the joined considering the long hours that will be spent in getting to the destination.
And lastly, be security conscious. Do not disclose your identity or your status quickly to anyone you might meet inside the bus especially if the face is not appealing and full of suspicions.
Obey and follow every rule and regulation required on the road even to where you are going.
I wish all the students success in their studies even as they journey back to their respective schools in the North.
