“The president promised to build secondary schools in the state and one is here today in Tambura County which is a legacy just after the independence of the country,” said Bakosoro.
He said the state should always thank the president for his leadership and fight against illiteracy in the country.
The governor said without education, people would be fighting and killing themselves because of little education.
Bakosoro encouraged soldiers and traders to utilise this chance to learn English courses.
He said the government is working hard to make sure teachers are well paid despite the austerity measures in the country.
Tambura County Commissioner Charles Ngbamisi Babiro thanked the local community for giving land for the construction and applauded the move by the government to build a school in the county.
Lolkuara Investment Construction Company staff Aldo Bona Makue said the construction work is expected to conclude by January 2012.
The school comprises of three buildings, two roomed laboratory and four classrooms for Chemistry, Physics, Biology and a technical room.
The other buildings include a teacher’s quarter, a conference hall and an office for the headmaster and his deputy.
