Collapsed FCT School Injures 8 Students In Abuja by Fynestboi: 10:17am On Sep 29, 2013
fynestboi: IT was a sad day yesterday in Nyanya, a satellite town and a suburb in the nation’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja when a storey building in one of the FCT owned Government Secondary School, GSS collapsed with eight students critically injured.

An eye witness told Vanguard that a section of the balcony of one of the storey buildings was affected, just as all the female students involved in the incident sustained various degrees of injuries, including broken limbs.

According to a source, one of the students who fell head down lost
half her teeth immediately and some of the victims have since been rushed to the Maitama General Hospital in Abuja, but no life was lost.

Speaking to Vanguard on telephone, the Director, Development Control of the FCDA, Yahaya Yusuf who disclosed that no life was lost, said that the hospital management was quick to attending to the injured students, adding that he was immediately at site to inspect, even as he stressed that instruction has been given that no work should be carried out there until integrity test was done to ensure that the other structure was strong enough for any additional structure.

Responding swiftly to the development, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, Senator Bala Mohammed ordered that a one-storey block of classrooms at the Government Secondary School, Nyanya be sealed off.

Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed gave the directive yesterday in Nyanya while inspecting the site.

The Minister who was represented by the Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Architect Reuben Okoya directed the Department of Development Control to investigate further to identify the cause.

The Minister immediately visited Maitama District Hospital where the students that sustained what he termed minor injuries were taken to for immediate medical attention.

At the hospital, Senator Mohammed instructed the Education Secretariat to foot all the medical bills of the injured students and that the Chief Medical Director of the Hospital must give the students special attention.

The Principal of the School, Mrs. Ngozi Ezeh during the inspection remarked that students were leaning on the hand railing of the canopy above the main entrance measuring 1.2×1.5m when it gave way.

A school collapsed? Gosh! Where are we heading to in this country? I'm sure the collapsed building didn't just collapse magically...it gave signs that were ignored. Sometimes i just wish i could snap some people's necks and kick them to oblivion.

Why do we like "managing" things? That building was "managed" till it collapsed. The same way some drivers would "manage" a car with a bad tyre.

I wonder how government will enforce building standard on private developers if they themself can not construct a standard structures. Press also are not helping the matter cos they don't report government collapes building. The headquater of FCT hospital managment board in Utaka beside bef plaza has collapes for some time now, nobody ever say anything about it.
