Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma Foundation (TYDF), an NGO, has donated instructional materials and COVID-19 preventive kits worth over N1.5 million to 12 schools in Bauchi State.
Akula said that 12 primary and post basic schools were selected to benefit from the gesture in Darazo, Dass, Warji and Itas Gadau Local Government Areas of the state.
He listed the items to include instructional materials, sanitiser, facemasks and buckets.
Akula said the Foundation had contributed towards the construction of schools and provision of instructional materials to schools in rural communities under the partnership with the FAWOYDI.
In a remark, Alhaji Korijo Umar, Director, School Services in the state’s Ministry of Education, identified lack of incentives for supervisors and teaching personnel as a major obstacle militating against sustainable development in the sector.
“Sound incentive packages are desirable to motivate education supervisors for effective service delivery,” he said.
Earlier, Hajiya Maryam Garba, Executive Director of the FAWOYDI, lauded the gesture, adding that it would go a long way to create enabling teaching and learning environment in the schools.
She said the organisation would scale up monitoring activities to ensure effective utilisation of the donated items in the schools. (NAN)
