The caretaker Chairman of Bama Local Government Area, Mohammed Tijjani, has distributed blankets to students of four secondary schools in the area to secure them from the seeping harmattan cold.
The gesture is in compliance with the directive of the Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima.
The benefitting students are in Government Technical College, Bama; Government Senior Science Secondary School, Bama; Government Secondary School, Kumshe; and Government Secondary School, Gulumba.
Distributing the blankets to the students, who are hosted at Government College Maiduguri due to the enduring insecurity in Bama Local Government Area, the chairman described education as the bedrock of every meaningful development, expressing his determination to develop education in the area.
Mohammed Tijjani praised the principals of the four schools for their patience and dedication to duty and urged them not to relent in those regards, as he called on the indigenes of the local government area to support the government in its efforts to provide more dividends of democracy.
The principals of the four schools and benefitting students appreciated the Borno State governor and the Bama LGA for the gesture.
