Old students of Christ Apostolic College Kuba, a missionary school in Barkin Ladi, Plateau State have proposed to build a fence around the school to protect it from bandits and other criminals.
Christ Apostolic College Old Students Association (CACOSA), is worried about rising insecurity in Nigeria, particularly increasing attacks and abductions in schools. An official of the association said, the union hopes to provide protection for students and school facilities by donating the infrastructure.
“We’ve been planning this for three months. We have billed ourselves to raise money for the project. We are completing fundraising for it this weekend,” said the official.
The fundraising will hold during the school’s 40th anniversary. It will be accompanied by the graduation of the school’s 39th and 40th sets. The 39th set could not graduate last year due to covid-19.
“This is the first of its kind and we are bringing dignitaries from home and diaspora for the event,” another Official said.
The college has produced some of Plateau’s leading professionals. Some of them are currently thriving in the academia, politics and economy. Among them is the current Director General of the Plateau State Contributory Healthcare Management Agency PLASCHEMA.
The school however operates in an unsecured structure, with little or no hostel acommodation for students. CACOSA’s fencing project might greatly enhance security and student comfort when completed.
