The road to G.B.H.S Ndop, the pioneer Government secondary school in Ngoketunjia Division has been abandoned at God’s Mercy. Two bridges are found on the road but non of the two is permanently constructed. They are all constructed with planks that easily dilapidate. Despite the over three thousand (3000) students who currently attend school in G.B.H.S Ndop, the road is also used by thousands of farmers and businessmen but yet it has been abandoned. G.B.H.S Ndop should be recalled is the only Bilingual High School in the Division currently operating a Francophone Section.
The second of the two bridges just below the handball field, recently collapsed and the raod was impassable. Speaking to ngoketunjiaonline, the principal of G.B.H.S Ndop, Mr. Ghogomu Simon Mitti described the situation as pathetic and unfortunate regretting why the council or the authorities concerned with farm to market roads are not taking their responsibilities. The principal said upon his arrival in 2011 there was a temporal bridge that collapsed weeks later, “We have two small bridges linking the school, and it is unfortunate that the public and the council or the authorities concerned with farms to markets roads, nobody has time. When I came 2011, I was told the bridge which was broken on Tuesday was supposed to be received on a certain Thursday, two days after the bridge was broken, I followed, went to the council, went to the SDO nothing was done, I now had to use my own Initiative to buy planks, Mr. Mokom supplied sand inside bags before a temporal thing was put in place for people to pass to school. After two years, it got broken again, I complained and complained but nobody had time. It was only my brother Ghogomu Mosses in Canada who had to celebrate his mother’s death and since cars could not pass he decided to do a temporary thing and we used it for some years and after some two years the bridge got broken and it was then that the council came in with some sticks but that one is not yet done and the second one is broken and I hear the council say they will do it when school resumes”. Mr. Ghogomu Simon Mitti lamented.
Speaking on the Weekly Mirror over Stone FM Radio, the principal revealed that preparations in view of an effective start to the new academic year has begun. We paid a courtesy visit to the school and met students coming to collect their results slips while registration formalities was pasted on the notice boards.
