Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday inspected a new school comprising six blocks of classrooms built at Gui, Sauka, the village of his late outrider, Inspector Ali Gomina, in the Federal Capital Territory.
The school was built under the aegis of the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
Osinbajo was represented by the Deputy Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Ade Ipaye.
Gomina died aged 45 in a road accident while on an official duty en route the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on March 13, 2020.
The District Head of Gui, Alhaji Alhassan Yusuf, expressed appreciation to the vice president for coming to the aid of the community in the area of education.
Yusuf, however, decried the poor state of the community’s road, which he said made it difficult for children to go to school at Sauka during the rainy season.
“With the number of classrooms in this school, we hope to have both junior and senior secondary classes in this school in Gui,” he added.
The Secretary of Programmes, OSSAP-SDGs, Danjuma Dauda, said the school was built in furtherance to the implementation of the SDGs in Nigeria, adding that the community was quite appreciative of what the government had done.
Osinbajo had earlier inaugurated a three-bedroom flat and a shop donated to Gomina’s family.
While handing over the building to the family of the deceased on behalf of the vice president, Ipaye said it was a good gesture for the family and the community.
