Bauchi — Bauchi State's Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB)has completed building over 3000 classroom blocks in all the 20 local government areas of Bauchi State in their effort to provide adequate classrooms for pupils in the state.

A permanent member of the board, Alhaji Mohammed Isa Narabi, who stated this while speaking with newsmen on the activities of the board in Bauchi, said before the end the year the board will build additional 300 classrooms and recruit 5,000 qualified teachers in their effort to commence a new system at the ration of one teacher per 40 pupils in the class rooms in the state in their effort to provide quality education in primary schools.

Isa Narabi said in addition SUBEB has provided text books worth N2.2billion and build toilets and provide portable water and furniture's in all primary schools in the state.

He reiterated the commitment of the board to build additional class rooms to wipe out the inherited number of pupils learning under the shade of trees.
