Tudun Fulani special primary school situated in Tudun Fulani Ward of Ungogo Local Government Area of Kano state has received attention after a Daily News24 documentary which highlighted the myriad of challenges which makes learning an eyesore in the school.
Earlier this year, Daily News produced a documentary with the title: “DOCUMENTARY: Tudun Fulani pupils and the throes of studying in a Kano school”
This documentary showed the dilapidated structure in which students were made to learn which included the absence of desks and benches in classes. Whenever it rains while the pupils are in class, the learning process is stopped because some of the classes have leaking roofs, no windows and decrepit doors.
The school’s toilet had been under lock and key for about 6 years, leaving pupils to defecate openly, on the school’s premises. The school also lacked fencing and was juxtaposed with a heap of refuse.
When Daily News24 visited Tudun Fulani Special Primary School recently, the Head Teacher of the school Mr Bashir Ishaq was delighted to speak with this reporter, as he highlighted a few developments in the school following the documentary.
The school has been provided with a block of two classrooms, furnished with desks and benches. Additionally, a block of classroom has been also renovated and the toilet which had been under lock and key for 6 years has been renovated and is available for use by the pupils, although the population of students supersedes the available toilet.

After Daily News 24 documentary
Daily News24 understands that the school still needs intervention, for instance, the school isn’t fenced yet, and students need learning materials. The school has no running water and the refuse which has now encroached into the school as a result of erosion needs to be cleared.
Irrespective of the ongoing challenges the school is faced with, the Head Teacher is happy about the new development and hopes for more. “There are other classes that have been marked for renovation and soonest, work will commence. We are happy about the new development in the school.” He said.
