Students of Government Science and Technical College (GSTC), Gbajimba in Guma Local Government Area of the state were full of excitement over the upgrade of the school’s facilities by  Star Deep Water Petroleum Limited, a Chevron Company and Partners in Agbami Field.

The company had built a block of classrooms  and provided teaching aids to the school to improve the learning environment.

A student, Terseer Terkaa, said before the intervention, the school lacked basic amenities to effectively aid the learning of science and technical subjects as its name implied.

He said the institution couldn’t even boast of modern tools and computers to assist them in their practicals adding that many of them felt the school had been forgotten because it is located in a rural area.

“But today, we have new classrooms, equipped with Information and Communication Technology Centre, laboratories, sick bay and offices. “

It was no wonder that the students, community people and traditional rulers in Gbajimba, headquarters of Guma LGA rolled out the drums to celebrate the commissioning of the project.

Some monarchs from the area who spoke during the inauguration of the facilities stressed the importance of science and technical education in the society.

They thanked the initiators and sponsors of the project while assuring that they will encourage their subjects to send their wards to the school.

Meanwhile, Governor Samuel Ortom has approved the construction of a perimeter fence and recruitment of science and technical teachers for improved teaching and learning of skills by students in the state.

He stressed the importance of science and technical education in the society and commended the sponsors of the project.

The Project Coordinator, Igodo Ebikibina, acknowledged the cooperation of the host community right from the initiation and completion of the project.
