Speaker, Niger State House of Assembly, Barr. Bawa Wuse.

Niger state government has been called upon to address the several challenges bedeviling Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu secondary school, Sarkin Pawa.

Member representing Munya constituency, Hon Andrew Danjuma Jagaba who moved a motion of urgent public importance at the house plenary, described the situation in the school as pathetic.

He said the school established in 2004 by former governor A. A Kure and commissioned by Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida was now in a state of total disrepair and needed urgent intervention.

Hon. Jagaba said the school was not fenced despite security threats facing the host community and also lacked other important educational facilities like clinic, ICT centre, school bus, playing ground, electricity among others. He said some of the things in the school were being provided and managed by the PTA.

He then urged the assembly to pass resolution urging the government to provide adequate educational facilities needed for conducive learning and put necessary security measures in place for the school.

The house however mandated the committee on education to interface and carry out oversight visits to schools in the state and report back in two weeks for necessary legislative action.
