Gombe gov inaugurates newly built model school

Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State yesterday inaugurated a newly constructed primary and junior secondary school in Kumbiya-Kumbiya ward of the Gombe metropolis.

Daily Trust learnt that the community is the only ward without a single primary or secondary school in the state capital.

The ultra-modern school was named ‘Alabura Model School,’ after a renowned educationist, the late Malam Alabura S. Kudi.

In his speech, the governor stated that his administration awarded the contract for the school in June last year and it was completed in less than 12 months.

He said the two-storey building has 36 classrooms, two offices, two staff-rooms and two computer rooms (e-Library), well-furnished and equipped with modern facilities.

He stated that the government had provided sporting facilities, water supply and good access roads to enhance total learning for the pupils and students.

Yahaya said at the inception of his administration, there were problems of a high number of out-of-school children and dilapidated structures and facilities in primary and secondary schools in the state.

He said, “We were able to improve on the enrollment figures significantly, renovated more than 400 classrooms and constructed over 200 new ones.

“We also ensured the provision of learning and teaching materials and recently approved the engagement of 1,000 teachers through the state Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to boost the human resource capacity in our schools.

 “Also, the administration is currently constructing five mega senior secondary schools as well as improving the standard of other junior model schools.”
