Nigeria: Parents Want School Project Completed At Achido Village

Parents at Achido community in Abaji Area Council in the FCT, Friday appealed to the authorities of the local education board in the area to assist in completing a one block of two classrooms at the community.

A spokesman of the community, Mr. Elias Joseph, said parents are disturbed over the learning condition of their children at the village. He said the one block of two classrooms with head master's office which was built through a self-help project got to a lintel level three years ago, but could not be completed due to lack of funds.

According to him, lack of classrooms in the community's school has subjected the pupils to learn in an unconducive environment, saying pupils have been learning inside a church at the community.

He also said residents of the community have been facing problem having access to potable water, saying women at the village trek down to the stream to fetch water.

When contacted, Secretary of Local Education Authority (LEA) in Abaji, Alhaji Alhassan Suleiman, said there is always a disbursement of self-help funds for primary school projects in the council and that he will find out whether the community has received its own share.
