Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum on Wednesday, November 18 offered to rebuild Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents while writing exams in April 2014.
Zulum made the promise during a visit to the school and also assured the people that the school would have a full complement of teaching and non-teaching staff and learning tools.
“We will deploy a team of experts to assess the entire school and come up with a design and costing for its immediate reconstruction and remodeling.
“We will also ensure that the school is allocated, adequate teachers. Already, I have given a directive for the recruitment of more teachers both on a permanent and ad-hoc staffing basis that will include volunteer teachers.
“Before the allocation of teachers, the reconstruction will involve the provision of all components of learning materials, including a functional laboratory for sciences. By the time I return here next time, I want to see a completely different scene.”
The Borno state Governor also will reportedly donate N11m to 83 families affected by Boko Haram attacks in Takulashi, a community near Chibok. He commiserated with the people over the attack on them by insurgents.
“What happened in Takulashi is very unfortunate, we share your pains and we all believe that nothing can equal the value of a single life. However, I will present a token to support the 83 families affected”
