The school’s dilapidated infrastructure, which can be said to be not only suitable for learning appear to have become a breeding ground for social vices.

The Senator Hope Uzodimma’s negligence on the school could be contributing to rising poor academic performance; as well as making it inconducive for learning.

In a Press interview with a Junior Secondary Student (JSS) of the College who gave his name as Amarachi Nwosu, told our reporter who visited the school, said, “We lack libraries and laboratories. Our classrooms are leaking. When it rains, our classes are flooded. Government should come to our aid”.

Another student who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The school was not fenced. There are no security personnel and this is a female school. Our pupils are raped often.

“Go to some classrooms, you will see where the ‘bad boys’ hide to smoke hemp. We want the school to be fenced,” she said.

When the Commissioner for Education, Professor Sylvester Okorondu, was contacted on the telephone, he declined comment.
