According to Buratai, this is to reduce the hardship being experienced by parents of the students, who are mainly farmers and traders that have lost their means of livelihood to insurgency.
The commissioner, who spoke when officials of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Borno State chapter, visited him, said parents may however be asked to pay 25 per cent of the total cost of the registration fees.
Regretting decay in the education sector, Buratai said arrangements had been made to enable senior secondary school students to take extra lessons to prepare them for their final examinations.
He also urged the visiting NUT members to organise workshops for teachers who were affected by the insurgency.
Chairman, NUT, Borno branch, Comrade Bulama Abiso, reiterated their plea to the state government to reopen schools within Maiduguri metropolis. He also appealed for improvement of teachers’ welfare and implementation of the N18,000 minimum wage as well as annual increment for  primary school teachers.
