Unfortunately the temporal structure was pulled down completely by the disaster last Friday.

“Thank God the students were not there at that time”, the Hon MCE prayed. She assured the headmistress that she will do all things possible to signal the Government to come to their aid so that the building is rather put up permanently instead of the prematurely roofing it which actually was the decision of the Headmistress Hajia Sherifatu.
