Community leaders inOgboloma, Abua Odual Local Government Area (LGA), of Rivers State have urgedthe Governor Nyesom Wike to rescue the community primary school from collapsedfacilities and absence of teachers.
The Chairman, Ogboloma Community DevelopmentCommittee (CDC), Tom Family, complained to the pressmen on Thursday that pupilsin the Community Primary School have no conducive environment to resumelearning ahead of imminent full resumption for schools over Covid-19.
“Due to prolonged neglect, the state of theprimary school has deteriorated so much that it is no longer conducive for learning,especially in the face of COVID-19.
The building is dilapidated, the roof blownoff by recent windstorms. “As we also make this appeal for the Governor’sintervention, Ogboloma Primary Schools has only two teachers seen on duty.Because of the bad state of the road to the community, teachers are apatheticto working here. We only see two.
“If they open schools this September or thereabout, our children in primary schools would have nowhere to learn and hardly any teacher to teach them. We are appealing to the Governor to come to our aid by way of renovation or upgrade of the school.
“At 41 I can attest that Ogboloma PrimarySchool has suffered prolonged neglect by successive administrations. “It is ourhope that with Wike’s assurance of massive upgrade of schools with poor offailing infrastructures which we see manifesting in other places, succour wecome our way.”
