A statement issued by Imam Imam, spokesman to Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, said the discovery was made during an assessment visit to Hafsat Ahmadu Bello Memorial Secondary School, Sokoto.

It said: "Only a few classes in the school have enough seats to accommodate them.

"For long, they have to put up with taking lectures while seated on bare floor.

"Most use prayer mats to protect their whote tops from the floor’s dust, while others come to classes with extra wrappers to spray on floor as they sit.

"While they have to put up with the most uncomfortable situation to take lectures daily, a few blocks away, 200 sets of classroom furniture were locked away, unattended to, and left to rot away."

It said that, the suffering of the students came to an end last week when the committee went to assess facilities and make recommendations to remedy identified problems.

The statement added that the team leader, Dr Shadi Sabeh, immediately ordered that the furniture be arranged in the class rooms, and admonished the school management to always prioritise the need of the students.

It said that school managers must, henceforth, key into the new vision of government for better schools, so as not to sabotage its efforts.
