Bauchi: Erring teachers, contractors in soup
The Bauchi State Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board,
SUBEB, Dr. Abubakar Surumbai Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi has threatened to sanction all erring teachers and blacklist contractors executing various contracts for the Board across the 20 local government areas of the state.
Bauchi stated this when he paid an unscheduled visit to some primary schools in Bauchi and Alkaleri Local Government Areas respectively.
He said “the state Governor, Senator BalaAbdulkadir Muhammad is nottaking any chances in the development of the education sector. That is the reason why immediately he assumed office, he made goodefforts to tackle the serious problems inherited in the basic educationsector. This was evidently glaring in the absence of aconducive learning environment.
“The decay could be seen in the congestion in classrooms, lack of desks and chairs with pupils studying on the floor, some under trees. It is heart- warming to note that Governor Muhammad has awarded overa N5billion worth of contracts to renovate and construct new classrooms and to provide desks and chairs and other teaching aids across the 20 LGAs.”
