2009-07-10:Generators Gulp Our Allocation Principal, GSS Abaji

Says no power from PHCN for 9 months

By Chika Okeke   


Budgetary allocations meant for general services at Federal Government Girls College (FGGC) Abaji are swallowed up by generating sets as the school has been running on the alternative power source following months of blackout from PHCN.

This was disclosed by the school’s principal, Mrs. Folashade Akintomide, over the weekend during the school’s fifth graduation/prize giving day ceremony held in Abaji, lamenting that PHCN has not extended its services to the school for the past nine months.

Mrs. Akintomide lamented inadequate toilet facilities for staff and students, and stated that erosion menace and lack of adequate landscaping contributed to poor access roads in the school.

She said it was a challenging task, under the circumstances, to significantly improve the general outlook of the college, especially in the areas of academic excellence, mentoring and moral discipline.

The principal commended the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) for their numerous assistances towards improving the standard of education in the school.

Also speaking, the Minister of Education, Dr. Sam Egwu, who was represented by Mrs Susan Onuoha, noted government's commitment towards giving prominence to girl-child education which was exemplified in the distribution of nearly half of Federal Unity Colleges to girl’s school.

"The most contributing factors to cases of high rate of girls drop-out from school are teenage pregnancy, debilitating diseases and poverty. HIV/AIDS is the most devastating diseases prevalent among young people who form the nucleus of students in secondary schools," she noted.

In his remarks, the Ona of Abaji, Alhaji Baba Yunusa Adamu, frowned that rampant cases of cultism in various institutions have undermined the learning environment across the country.
