Parents of the Local Education Authority (LEA) Primary School, Anguwar Wana, Gurdi Ward in Abaji Area Council of the FCT have decried the dilapidated state of classrooms.
The parents at the weekend said the classrooms were in a state of dilapidation and without roofs since a windstorm blew them off over a year ago.
A parent, Shuaibu Aliyu, said that the situation posed serious risk to the lives of both the pupils and the teachers.
He added that, “Because of the dilapidated state of the school, some parents have been discouraged to send back their wards to school. They mostly prefer them to go to the farm.”
A teacher in the school, Ibrahim Shehu, said since the entire structures of the school had been in a state of dilapidation, learning was no longer conducive for both teachers and pupils.
While noting that the school which was established in 2017 lacked learning facilities, including teachers, said, “I am a casual teacher in this school for nearly eight years. I have visited the LEA management in Abaji in order for them to employ me as a permanent teacher to no avail.
“In fact, it is only two of us who are natives of this community that have been teaching in this school as casual teachers for the past eight years.”
Our reporter gathered that the Head Teacher of the school, Ibrahim Yunusa, a resident of Ebbo village in Niger State, came to school on a motorcycle once a week.
The Chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of the school, Alhaji Umar Dangana, could not be reached and officials of the LEA in the council refused to speak on the issue.
