Wike Approves The Construction Of LEA Primary School In Bagusa Established During Buhari’s Administration

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has granted approval for the construction of LEA Primary School in Bagusa, Abuja, initially established by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. The school, which operates without walls, accommodates approximately 200 pupils with 16 desks, six classrooms, and a creche.
Following an on-site evaluation of the teaching and learning conditions at the school, Wike, represented by the Mandate Secretary of the FCT Education Secretariat, Danlami Ihayyo, expressed dissatisfaction with the current state of learning.
Ihayyo disclosed that the minister has directed the transformation of the school into a modern facility catering to both primary and junior secondary education.
Additionally, plans include the construction of an additional block of four classrooms through the Universal Basic Education Commission’s (UBEC) counterpart funding in 2023.
He said, “We came for an inspection of this school because we learned that the school was established here by the previous administration. After the establishment of the school, there was no single structure provided by the previous administration.
“So, it came to our notice when we saw a post in one of the newspapers, so the Minister of FCT directed us to come and inspect the school so that the minister will see how he can intervene so that the school will look very nice and the children will learn in a very conducive environment.
“The Minister has directed that I come and supervise the school so that in no time, the construction will commence in this school.
“We are going to convert the school from the current structure to a new modern structure where both the primary and the junior secondary school will be constructed here so that the pupils will learn from primary one to six in a conducive environment. Again, at the same time, from Junior Secondary School one to three in this premises.
“We are expecting the complete six classroom blocks (six classroom blocks of four classrooms and completion of this one started by the community).
“So, we are going to complete it, and then we are going to construct a new block of four classrooms through Universal Education Commission (UBEC) intervention through their counterpart funding of 2023.”
