Heavy rainstorm on Saturday worsened the woes of Bedia Secondary Commercial School, the only government commercial secondary school in the entire Obudu Local Government Area.

Structures in the school had already broken down completely and become inhabitable for pupils due to neglect occasioned by the handing over of the school by the community to the state government.

Efforts by some concerned indigenes of the village through the Naira Age Grade to fix the school started yielding some results with one of the eight blocks undergoing renovation.

Structural work on the block standing next to the only other block that was still having a roof was already at advanced stages. But rainstorms on Saturday blew off portions of the ongoing roofing and the roof of the remaining block too was not spared.

In a chat with CrossRiverWatch, a former Chairman of the LGA and now a private medical practitioner who is from the village, Dr. Abu Undiandeye said: “This is a very terrible situation for us here. We have been making efforts since this matter was made public to see how facilities in the school could be revamped and the efforts were paying off before this disaster of Saturday.

“We will continue to appeal to all well-meaning sons and daughters of this community as well as call on the state government to see the need for immediate intervention in the condition of this school. This is the only government owned commercial school in the local government and the place has become inhabitable for pupils to study.”

Dr. Undiandeye promised that they will not relent in their effort but will continue to mobilize support and resources to see how they can return the school to its glory days.
