Announcing the plan on Saturday, the Commissioner for Education, Mohammed Lamin, said the counselling become necessary, as teachers in the said areas had passed through series of trauma complications which would negatively affect their productivity.
The commissioner spoke to Channels Television on the state of schools in the affected areas, as people continue to return to their homes after the military had restored peace to the northeast.
Sharing the current state of schools in Yobe State, Mr Lamin said insurgency had greatly caused devastating effects on education in the state.
He pointed out that the counselling had become necessary since teachers in some communities were finding it difficult to return to their duties due to the bad experiences they had gone through at the time of the senseless killings by Boko Haram insurgents.
On the structural setbacks suffered in the sector, the commissioner said several schools were destroyed by the insurgents in six council areas of Gujba, Gulani, Damaturu, Tarmuwa, Yunusari and Geidam with Gujba and Gulani facing a demoralising effect.
In Gujba and Gulani, according to him, schools were completely closed down as, laboratories, classrooms and hostels among others were not functioning because of the activities of the militants.
Mr Lamin also stated that rebuilding the destroyed schools was beyond the capacity of state government and appealed to the Federal Government as well as donor agencies and spirited individuals to contribute towards the reconstruction.
With the provision of food, water among other basic needs to affected communities, their schools need to be fully reconstructed and reequipped so as to encourage learning among the children as well as refreshed the minds of the traumatised teachers.
