The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) said it would soon embark on the completion of all abandoned building projects in all public schools in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Speaking during an inspection tour of some public schools in parts of the territory yesterday, the secretary of Education Secretariat, Senator Isa Maina noted that the building projects, which were initiated by the previous administrations, were abandoned because of the recession.
Maina however stated that the contractors, handling the projects would soon be mobilised back to the affected schools to complete the jobs in good time.
He explained that the visit was meant to assess the challenges facing public school in the FCT, so that adequate arrangements could be made to address them, just as he identified poor lighting, uncompleted buildings, insufficient instructional materials, lack of desks and chairs, among others as some of the challenges facing the schools.
“We have embarked on this visit to assess and identify challenges facing our public schools in the FCT, especially as the schools resume.
We have noted the challenges facing them, especially poor lighting, uncompleted buildings, lack of desks and chairs, among others. So, we would go back, and at the management level see how we could solve them.”
