FGGC Bwari laments insufficient overhead cost, ICT infrastructure
Principal, Federal Government Girls’ College, Bwari, Mrs. Stellamaris Omu, has appealed to the government to look into the insufficient budgetary provision of the college, as well as its Information and Communications Technology (ICT) facilities.
She made the appeal during the audit exercise visit of the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and the Chairman, Senate Committee on Basic and Secondary Education, Senator Aliyu Wamakko.
The visit, which afforded the minister and the senate committee chairman the opportunity to meet with the Director/Principal of the college and other management staff to discuss their challenges also featured a facility tour by the team.
Omu said, “Some of the challenges confronting us are incomplete and broken perimeter fence, inadequate dining hall space, which compelled us to allow the girls to eat in batches and this affects our daily routines. Also, we have inadequate ICT facilities for the large number of learners as well as insufficient budgetary provision for overheads, amongst others.
“We pray that your coming will bring the college the needed enhancement of our existing facilities in line with quality education delivery for the girl-child. It is our desire that you will sometime, despite your tight schedules, visit us again and especially, during the academic session.”
While Adamu on his part commended the management and staff of the college for their warm welcome, Wamakko promised that issues relating to some of the challenges will be attended to in due course.
