Dr Aliagan said considering the health hazards and security implication to the life of the pupils and students, the Ilorin Emirate Stakeholders decided to construct a befitting edifice within the premises of the school.
He said: “There were only two decayed rooms being used for pupils of primary one to six and headmaster’s office respectively until the group took it upon itself to build a more befitting spacious ones hence the structure in place today.
Aliagan urged the beneficiary community to make judicious use of the structure, as many other social amenities would soon visit the place.
Responding to the gesture, the Leader of Alaparo Community, Magaji Aliu Ajadi commended the forum for the structure and appreciated the presence of the governor at the commissioning of the project.
Ajadi also used the opportunity of the occasion to call for provision of social amenities in the community including electricity, road network, potable water supply among others.
