DELTA - It is extremely difficult for one to believe that a public school for pupils in a state where a humongous amount of crude oil proceeds from which Nigeria’s main source of income is derived, would in this modern era harbour such an eyesore in its education sector when other countries of the world boasts of state-of-art educational facilities with cozy and serene learning environment for their citizens.

In spite of huge budgetary allocations earmarked annually to cater for the needs of public schools in the country, including rehabilitation of dilapidated school buildings, Omotimipere primary school in Akparemogbene community, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State as captured in this publication, is completely abandoned without aid from both the state government and interventionist agencies.

While the State government house and its officials occupy exquisite edifices or mansions, only three dilapidated buildings serve as classrooms for the pupils such that the majority of them take lessons in the open despite the cold chilling weather.

The buildings and facilities of the primary school are in shambles and the decrepit condition in which the pupils learn is absolutely unfit for human beings, especially the young school children to be groomed. While the roofs of some of the classrooms have been blown open, making sunshine and rain to gain unrestricted access to the poor little children, some other classrooms are pervaded by sordid darkness. In fact, the sorry state of the school when sighted would make one immediately develop goose pimples.

Promises of quality education is one of the cardinal issues that public office holders at all levels in the country often ride on to get the mandate of the people. This is always followed by a huge annual budget for the sector to show their commitment to the people. But to what extent do these huge annual allocations affect the quality of education and the conditions in which pupils learn?

A recent visit to primary schools located in the aforementioned local government in Delta State, reveals that many of the schools are in a terrible state of disrepair and are largely fuelling the rising incidence of children dropping out of school in the rural area.
