NYSC corp member massive project in Bauch

2 classroom blocks built

NYSC corp member massive project in Bauchi. Rahila Garba, a serving corps member, built a two-classroom block for students at Gudum Hausawa Primary School in the Gudum village, a neighborhood of Bauchi.

Garba stated at the project’s inauguration on Tuesday that when she arrived in Bauchi, she saw that the school was in disrepair, with students learning under trees and sitting on bare ground.

She stated that she felt immediate compassion for the youngsters and decided to begin on the initiative in order to transform the situation and put a smile on the faces of the students and teachers.

“At the time I was posted here for my primary assignment, I discovered the need for more classrooms and the learning environment was not conducive for the pupils and the school’s management, even the structures were dilapidated and needed urgent renovation as most students received lectures under the trees,” she continued.

“It was this harrowing experience that sparked the idea for building more classrooms.” Though it was initially difficult to bring this idea to life given my financial capabilities, I was determined and so enthusiastic to see that this project was realized.”

She stated that she made contact with and asked assistance from government ministries, departments, and organizations, as well as significant individuals in the state, to assist her in carrying out her plans, but that only an engineering business assisted her.

“I decided to consult on the cost of the entire project’s construction and began to shuttle here and there seeking approval and doing some paperwork until I finally got the approval of Habibu Engineering Nigeria Limited for sponsorship.” I am pleased to announce that this project is now complete, and it will be officially launched to begin class activities here.

“Today, I challenge you to rise and contribute your fair share to society in order to make it a better place for all of us and our future leaders by promoting good education.” “Regardless of our cultures, religions, or tribes, education is the key to every development in our homes, communities, and the nation at large,” Garba added.

She thanked the NYSC for approving the project and Habibu Engineering Nigeria Limited for funding it, the Office of the Head of Civil Service for approving it, fellow corps members who supported and encouraged her when the idea was first conceived, and the Primary School management.

Speaking while inaugurating the project, the Bauchi State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, Rifkatu Yakubu, explained that the corps member facilitated the construction of the building as her Community Service Development project.

She praised her for her strength and desire to complete the school-building project despite the difficulties of gathering funding.

She urged all levels of government, well-meaning Nigerians, and corporate organizations to assist corps members in carrying out community development projects.

Yakubu explained that the corps member’s classroom block was the first of its kind she had inaugurated since taking office as the state’s NYSC Coordinator roughly a year ago.

“I am overjoyed that this initiative is large and viable. We’re competing on a national scale. The Local Government Honours Award, the State Honours Award, and the Presidential Honours Award are all available.

“This project would be forwarded to the national headquarters and by the grace of God, she’ll compete with other states and by the grace of God, I know she’ll come out victorious,” she went on to say.

According to the NYSC coordinator, Garba’s project will benefit the students of the Gudun Hausawa community, who had previously been learning in harsh conditions under trees while being exposed to snakes and other harmful creatures.

Umar Tukur of the Sarkin Gudum Hausawa community thanked the corps member for the gift, saying it will benefit the entire community.

Tukur also thanked everyone who helped with the project and urged the Local Government Council to build a road and a bridge in the village because pupils had difficulty getting to school during the wet season.

In a statement, Bauchi Local Government Chairperson Zinab Babantakko praised Garba for facilitating the construction of the school’s classrooms, assuring everyone that the government will rehabilitate all abandoned school buildings across the state.


Babatakko claimed that the school’s second block of classrooms, which is in disrepair, would be repaired and furnished with learning and restroom facilities soon.
