The Kwara State government has again warned pupils/students not to loiter around during school hours.
The Kwara State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Fatimah Bisola Ahmed made this known when answering questions from pressmen in her office.
In her words, “let me use this medium to inform parents/guardians that the anti-loitering Unit in the Ministry which is saddled with the responsibility to arrest and detain any pupils/ students loitering during the school hours has started going round.
“Any student/pupil found wandering will be arrested and may be sanctioned forthwith. Also, the parents of the culprit will be invited for questioning and necessary actions”.
Hajia Ahmed therefore warned parents/guardians to ensure their children/wards do not loiter but remain within their premises during school hours.
The Commissioner reiterated that the present administration under the leadership of Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq will not condone any act of indiscipline in public schools across the state.
Meanwhile, the Kwara State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Fatimah Bisola Ahmed has lauded the  initiative of the Teacher Registration Council of Nigeria, (TRCN), Kwara State Chapter on the enforcement of professional registration of teachers in Kwara State.
The commissioner gave commendation while receiving her certificate as a certified teacher which was presented by the state Coordinator of TRCN, Mr. Otun Akeem Olajide in her office.
In her words, “before my appointment as a commissioner, my father advised me to register for the teacher’s professional examination and I concurred. I wrote the exams last year and to God be the glory, am now a certified teacher.”

She however reiterated the ministry’s support for the TRCN in its enforcement drive in schools across the state.
Earlier, the state coordinator, TRCN, Mr. Otun Akeem Olajide, commended the Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq led administration for the appointment of a professional teacher to head the ministry.
