The summit seeks to address the recurring issues of safety as it relates to the education system in Nigeria, the company’s CEO Wale Olaoye said in a statement.
Olaoye said: “It is essential for our children to have good knowledge of security and safety tips. As parents, guardians, teachers and carers, we should start teaching our children and pupils some basic security tips.
“Security education is key to growing safer and peaceful learning environment in the country. There is no better time to include security awareness education and safety knowledge in our school curriculum than now.
“This is why Halogen is partnering IA- Foundation a United Kingdom (UK) registered educational charity set up to transform lives through education in Nigeria and Africa.”
