The deplorable state of learning for the students was brought to light by TrackaNG, a non-government organisation that enables citizens to collaborate and track capital projects in their community, on Tuesday.

The NGO shared photos of the dilapidated school facilities on its Twitter handle on Tuesday.

The NGO is calling on the Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, to renovate the school located in the Toro Local Government Area of the state.

“All the classrooms structures have been damaged except one. In 2021, the school received N20m from the government for innovation and they only renovated one block of two classrooms without providing furniture,” it stated.

“The school has over 1500 students and there are no available furniture or teaching materials. There is also no functional toilet in the facility. #bauchigov, kindly renovate and equip Yakubu Bauchi College of Islamic Studies.”

The state government is yet to respond to the as at press time.
