Nigeria launches mobile classrooms for IDPs in restive Borno


The project was to provide children the opportunity to acquire basic education in a standard environment, Chairman of the Presidential Initiative for the North-East, Adesoji Adeleye, said in Maiduguri, the state capital.
“We designed these classrooms as mobile so that as people begin to move we can move the facility with them,” Adeleye said.

He said the classrooms were equipped with solar panels to provide light.

“They also have desks for the teachers, blackboards, whiteboards and a battery pack that stores energy so that at night it can provide light to the community,” the chairman said.

According to him, the initiative had supplied 12 units to the Dalori camp in Maiduguri which had the highest number of displaced persons in the state.

He said the initiative would distribute the rest eight units to camps in Yobe and Adamawa.

Adeleye also appealed to wealthy Nigerians and corporate organizations to complement the government’s efforts in buying the classrooms for the children. Enditem
