Abuja – Borno State has directed Biu Local Government Council to reconstruct a primary school built with mud at Yautari Village.
The Deputy Governor, Zannah Mustapha, gave the directive when he visited the school.
He expressed disgust at the condition of the school which had no basic facilities for learning.
“I am not happy with the poor condition of the school especially with the mud building and the thatch roof. This is worrisome. I have directed the local council to initiate the process of building a modern school in the area,” he said.
Mustapha said since the directive would take some time to implement, the council should renovate the structure in the interim.
“I have directed that the thatch roof be replaced with modern roof immediately while the mud building will also be renovated and cemented to provide a better learning condition for the pupils,” Mustapha said.
The deputy governor pledged to rebuild the school personally if the council failed to act in three months.
“I promise that I will personally sponsor the rebuilding of the school if the council fails to carry out my directives in three months,” said the official.
The Headmaster of the School, Malam Bukar Usman, told the deputy governor that the school was founded five years ago as an extension of the Sabon-Gari Primary School.
“The school was set up by the community as an extension of the Sabon-Gari Primary school with the understanding of the local government council but along the line they left us on our own,” he said.
