Bauchi College Degenerates Despite ‘Receiving N20m from Govt’

Despite budgeting about N20 million for renovation and re-equipping of Yakubu College of Islamic Studies, Bauchi State in 2021, the college still operates in skeletal form.

During its visit to the college, Tracka, a collaborative community of citizens tracking government projects across the country, found that students were taking lessons on bare floors.

The team claimed that the school received the budgeted money from the government and only renovated a block of two classrooms.

The school, located in Toro local council has about 1,500 students who have no access to basic learning materials including chairs,  teaching aid and other necessary furniture. Tellingly, the students do not have access to functional toilets.

“The school has over 1,500 students and there is no available furniture or teaching materials,” Tracka tweeted. “There is also no functional toilet in the facility.”

The project monitoring team, however, urged the concerned authorities to give the college a face-lift. “Kindly renovate and equipped Yakubu Bauchi College of Islamic Studies,” it pleaded.
