Nigeria High Commission builds school in Cameroon

23 June 2015, 18:12

Abuja - The Nigerian High Commission in Cameroon has facilitated the construction of some classrooms in a disadvantaged community in Ovangul, Cameroon.

The three classrooms constructed at Government Primary School Ovangoul 3, in the Mefou and Akono Division of the Centre Region have been established in partnership with The MTN Foundation and Adamawa Women and Girls Association (AFFADA).

Hadiza Mustapha, Nigeria High Commissioner in Cameroon, attended the handover ceremony.

The rehabilitation of classrooms at GPS Ovangoul 3 falls in line with the continuation of MTN Foundation’s engagement to support the State for a primary education ensured within appropriate infrastructural and pedagogic conditions through its Y’ello Schools programme.

The three classrooms re-built, funded by the MTN Foundation within the framework of the 2014 Charity Program” of the NHC, shall enable to restore Government Primary School Ovangoul 3’s former glory. As a matter of fact, this institution created 49 years ago, has witnessed a significant drop in its performance over the last 8 years, when bad weather damaged the 03 reconstructed classrooms, rendering them unusable.

With these new classrooms and the sixty benches equally offered by the MTN Foundation, it is expected that, the enrolment of Government Primary School Ovangoul 3, shall considerably increase during the 2015-2016 academic year, from 100 pupils registered last year to over 200 during next-back-to-school.

According to Professor Ebenezer Njoh Mouelle, Member of the MTN Foundation Board of Trustees, “Education is for us the top of priorities and we invest therein, 70 percent of our budget with the aim of providing our young learners with adequate hosting infrastructure so as to ensure their access to quality education.
