The Nasarawa State House of Assembly’s Committee on Education, Science and Technology has commended Governor Abdullahi Sule’s administration for the massive construction and renovation of schools across the state.
The committee said the general works in schools in the 13 local governments areas and development areas of the state was a right step in the right direction.
The chairman of the Committee, Hon. Daniel Ogah Ogazi, gave the commendation when he led other lawmakers on an inspection tour of State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) schools projects in the state.
He said the development testified to Governor Sule’s administration readiness to revamping the education sector by ensuring a befitting learning and teaching environment for both teachers and students in the state.
Ogazi, who stated this on Thursday at Nasarawa Eggon, said the committee was happy seeing schools wearing a new look.
“With the ongoing remodeling of schools, teachers and parents will have no reason to complain over dilapidated structures and expressed fear of unforeseen building collapse, given the standard adopted for the ongoing work,” he said.
The chairman stated that the Committee moved out to see things for itself, with a view of correcting any abnormally, if discovered.
He, however, frowned at the contractor in charge of construction at Akwanga South Primary School for failing to commence work.
“I am calling on the contractor in charge of the classrooms construction at Akwanga South Primary School to resume work immediately or we will take action against him.
“We are here as part of our constitutional duty, which is to oversight the ongoing construction and renovation of schools projects,” Ogazi said.
