Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has said government would no longer tolerate school bullying because of its potential harmful effects on victims.

Nwajiuba stated this in Abuja at a youths training event on anti-bullying organised  by ‘I am the Future of Nigeria Youth  Initiative,’ an interest group in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Federal Capital Territory Authority, Nigeria Police Force and the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC).

He said that bullying was capable of stopping children from being productive and responsible members of the society, hence, the need to urgently address the ‘ugly phenomenon’ in the nation’s secondary schools.

In their remarks, founders of the initiative, Renee Okocha, 15 and Zara Okocha 20, also known as the Okocha Sisters, said the training was necessitated by their desires to end illiteracy and bullying by creating safe learning environments for students.
