Mr. Anthony David, a member of the host community of the school, commended the Principal and management of the school for constructing a new block of classrooms that are yet to be completed.

He urged Governor Agbu Kefas to review the free education system and consider allowing schools to continue collecting the PTA fee, as the government cannot do everything alone.
