The Sokoto State Committee on the Implementation of State of Emergency in Education, has discovered 200 sets of furniture locked up at a school where students sit on bare floor for lessons.

A statement issued by Imam Imam, spokesman to Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, said the discovery was made during an assessment visit to Hafsat Ahmadu Bello Memorial Secondary School, Sokoto.

It said: “Only a few classes in the school have enough seats to accommodate them. For long, they have to put up with taking lectures while seated on bare floor.

“Most use prayer mats to protect their white tops from the floor’s dust, while others come to classes with extra wrappers to spread on the floor.

“While they have to put up with the most uncomfortable situation to take lectures daily, a few blocks away, 200 sets of classroom furniture were locked away, unattended to, and left to rot.”

It said that the suffering of the students came to an end last week when the committee went to assess the facilities and make recommendations to remedy identified problems.

The statement added that the team leader, Dr. Shadi Sabeh, immediately ordered that the furniture be arranged in the classrooms, and admonished the school management to always prioritise the need of the students.
