Akinlolu Segun, popularly known as ‘Beautiful Nubia’, has lamented the poor state of disrepair of the primary school he attended, St. James Primary School, Oke-Bola, Ibadan, Oyo State.
The talented Nigerian musician, who paid a visit to the school on Tuesday, made it known that he was close to tears when he saw the dingy buildings without roofs which are used as classrooms.
He also made it known that he would love to contribute money to the repair of the abandoned school but wondered what the job of the state government was.
“I paid a visit to my old school the other day, Saint James Primary School, Oke-Bola, Ibadan, the school I attended from 1974 to 1980. I took my children and friends with me, proud to show off the places and people who produced me.
“The roofs were blown off; waterlogged floors; over populated classrooms; overwhelmed teachers and poor, unimaginative curriculum. No, that was not the way it was when I was a student there,” he stated.
Beautiful Nubia called on Governor Seyi Makinde to direct his attention to the school, noting that the governor could also channel some of his personal resources to the repair of the primary school.
