Alumni of Government Day Secondary School (GDSS), Adeta have made passionate appeals to the Kwara State government, seeking swift intervention over the worsening condition of their alma mater.
Speaking on behalf of the Alumni association, Mr Hassan Ibrahim said the call follows their observation of the giant strides made by the state government in repositioning several schools in the metropolis and other districts.
Ibrahim said GDSS, Adeta has become an eyesore, adding that no meaningful learning can hold there as a result of the unconducive environment and dilapidated structure.
The alumnus thanked Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, revealing that various steps have been taken in the past to bring his attention to the ugly development.
Also speaking, Mr Usman Olatunji Azeez, Biology teacher and Chief Exam Officer noted that “the state of the school infrastructure is going awry and needs complete overhaul and renovation.”
He said most classrooms in the school do not worth the name, adding that windows and doors of the school have been destroyed.
“Laboratory materials have gone into extinction; roofs of classrooms have been torn apart by the wind,” he stated.
Usman alerted the government that hoodlums around the streets have now turned the classes into their meeting point, where they engage in all manner of misdemeanours.
“Cows have now turned the school to their grazing area. This will be very hazardous to students of the school ahead of resumption.”
