Let's Revisit Our School Structures

A lot of time, we pay attention to the beginning of a thing but less attention is paid to the maintenance structure of such a thing. This is a pointer and a reawakening call to all government officials, all private institution owners cut across the country Nigeria to wake up from their slumber and do the needful.

Maintenance is the process of ensuring that buildings and other assets retain a good appearance and operate at optimum efficiency. Inadequate maintenance can result in decay, degradation, and reduced performance and can affect health and threaten the safety of users, occupants, and others in the vicinity.

One of the problems we face in Nigeria is the inability to maintain structures that have been built in the past and are been built currently.  The mindset that nothing can happen to a structure in as much there is no sign of repair visible to the eyes. This mindset should have been expressed in words earlier to the parents, family, and well-wishers who lost their loved ones in a tragic building collapse in Lagos State on the 13th of March, 2019. Maybe, they wouldn't have admitted their wards to such a school that lacks maintenance structure.

Report revealed that the building, located at the end of the street is over 20 years old and among its occupants is the nursery and primary school, which children within the neighborhood attend.  The question we are left to ask is; when last was the building of such magnitude visited for maintenance service.

If they are no system for such, this is a clarion call to the state government to create a plan to revisit schools for maintenance service. The safety and well-being of the citizen should be their primary priority.
