The Kaduna State government has praised Arewa Metal Containers Limited, ARMECO for the construction of a borehole worth N10 million in one of the government secondary schools in the state.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony at Government Girls’ Secondary School, GGSS Kakuri, Kaduna, the Commissioner of Education, Halima Lawal said, the availability of water in any learning environment improves on hygiene and healthy living.
Represented by the Deputy Director Public Schools, Mrs. Baita Mercy Kude, she disclosed that, ARMECO has done well in complimenting governments’ effort in the provision of social amenities.
Halima appreciated the company for extending such gesture particularly in a girls’ school environment where they will be needing water to keep themselves neat and the environment as well.
When the girl child is experiencing her monthly flow and there is no water to clean herself, she tends to feel uncomfortable within her learning facility, but now that water is available, she will do the needful and automatically, she becomes more comfortable with the environment, which makes learning convenient for her.”
The Commissioner called on other companies to imitate ARMECO by extending such gestures to their host communities.
