The Akwa Ibom State government has commenced the construction of sixty modular (electronic) classroom blocks across the ten federal constituencies in the state.

Ten modular classroom blocks have so far been built in Uyo High School, Etoi primary school, Uyo and in schools in Onna local government area.

Explaining the rationale for the option of modular classrooms on Tuesday in Uyo, the state capital, the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Victor Inoka said the government thought it wise for students in public schools to enjoy a feel of what students in developed countries who have modular classrooms were enjoying.

He explained that modular classroom blocks regulate temperature according to the weather condition just as it remains cool when the temperature is high, saying that the classrooms are fitted with gadgets to access information across the world and that in the classrooms, hence no need for air-conditioners.

Inoka stated that each classroom accommodates 30 students and a teacher, adding that it is resistant to fire.

“Sixty schools are proposed for the project. It is supposed to be 60 modular classroom blocks in the 10 federal constituencies of Akwa Ibom. This is the first phase of the project, the materials are complete and ready for use.

“We have done four in Uyo High school, Oron road, one at Etoi primary and secondary schools. There are two at Onna local government areas, we have built and completed it. Others are spread across the 10 federal constituencies in Akwa Ibom.

“The essence is for the students to feel what other students in civilised countries such as America, Britain, China, Korea etc. feel. The classroom blocks regulate temperature to be moderate according to the weather condition. It is fire resistant.

“It can be cool when the temperature is hot without air-conditioner. With the gadgets you access anywhere that is what we want to do here. The normal classroom is 30 students to a teacher.

“The equipment for the modular classroom blocks were ordered from Turkey. The experts came to assemble it from Turkey; most of the equipment is in the Ministry of Education warehouse,” he said.

Prof. Inoka said the government is currently sponsoring the education of 31 students in private schools drawn from the 31 local government areas of the state.

He said poor but intelligent students whose parents would ordinarily not afford to sponsor them in private schools were picked for the scholarships programme.
