    I happen to be a member of the School Based Management Committee (SBMC) of this school, Government Secondary School, Badarawa, Kaduna. I just make it a habit that whenever I’m in town, I do visit the School to see the situation on ground and see how the community could come in with a view to assisting the school and students in general as it does always.

    The school has more than 5000 students and 22 class rooms – average of 220 students per class. The community gathered some resources and secured SSCE centers for both WAEC and NECO with no government assistance.

    What baffles me most, in whole of the School, no class with a single desk or chair for the students to sit on. It was the PTA normally provided a class with chairs and tables, paid security and some contracted teachers at the end of every term from the N200 levy collected from each student of the School. But after the State Government cancelled PTA collection, the School has not received a single chair since then.

    In a class of more than 200 students, they all sit on bare floor to receive lessons. And this school is less than 2km from Kaduna Capital School where the son of Governor Nasir El-rufa’i attends and his government presently spending millions of Naira renovating it.

    When the government disengaged security personnel, this school has no security personnel, despite having an e-library donated by network providers via NCC as part of their social responsibility. It is the Community that employed the service of security guard to protect those computers and the school in general. The school lacks enough teachers, class rooms and toilet facilities while it is a combination of boys and girls.

    The School really needs urgent intervention from Kaduna State Government, especially that it is located in the City Centre of the State.
