Dungurawa Community has called on the Kano State Government to investigate a roofing work that was done by a contractor at the town’s primary school, which needs urgent intervention.
Our correspondent who visited the block, gathered that the rafter of the roofing was made with very low quality wood, cut from a light tree which may become a threat to the pupils, especially at this rainy season period.
Furthermore, a report on the matter was sent to the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB) before the roofing, but nothing was done to stop the contractor from placing roofing sheets on the classroom block, despite the discovery of using very low quality wood.
A source told New Nigerian that the contractor is also the person handling the rehabilitation of Zaura, Karas, Bagga and Dungurawa primary schools, which are alleged to be the same mode of work.
Parents and guardians therefore, called on the Executive Governor of Kano State to investigate how the roofing was done for the safety of their kids under the roof.
