A school in Bauchi State, the Yakubu Bauchi College of Islamic Studies with over 1500 students has no furniture or a functional toilet.
These facts were brought to light by TrackaNG, a non-government organisation that enables citizens to collaborate and track capital projects in their community, on Tuesday.
The NGO shared photos of the dilapidated school facilities on its social media page and called on the Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, to renovate the school located in the Toro Local Government Area of the state.
TrackaNG said, “All the classrooms structures have been damaged except one. In 2021, the school received N20m from the government for innovation and they only renovated one block of two classrooms without providing furniture.
“The school has over 1500 students and there are no available furniture or teaching materials. There is also no functional toilet in the facility. #bauchigov, kindly renovate and equip Yakubu Bauchi College of Islamic Studies.”
