Babagana Zulum, the Governor for Borno State, during a visit to the Government Secondary School in Chibok where Boko Haram kidnapped over 200 girls in 2014, has promised to reconstruct the school.
According to him, a team of experts will be hired to assess the school before its reconstruction. He also added that he will see to it that adequate teachers, laboratories, and learning materials are provided for the school.
Read what he said below;
“We will deploy a team of experts to assess the entire school and come up with a design and costing for its immediate reconstruction and remodeling.
“We will also ensure that the school is allocated adequate teachers. Already, I have given a directive for the recruitment of more teachers both on permanent and ad-hoc staffing basis that will include volunteer teachers.
“Before the allocation of teachers, the reconstruction will involve the provision of all components of learning materials, including a functional laboratory for sciences. By the time I return here next time, I want to see a completely different scene.”
From the school, the Governor also visited Takulashi, a community near Chibok where some families also suffered some attacks from Boko Haram. He promised to give N11m to the affected families that are about 83.
“What happened in Takulashi is very unfortunate, we share your pains and we all believe that nothing can equal the value of a single life. However, I will present a token to support the 83 families affected”, He said.
