The government was considering temporary closure of some of the eight unity colleges in the region. It gathered that the areas where the affected schools are located are considered to be some of the hot spots in the crises which have troubled the three states under emergency rule. Other students who are affected by the closure of the schools but not writing public examinations, will also be relocated to FGGC Bauchi, FGGC Bajoga, FGC Maiduguri, FSTC Kafanchan and FSTC Dayi.
