Government Model School, Bida Down The Memory Lane

Updated on March 11, 2015

With the creation of Niger state, Government Model School, Bida was established in 1975. It is a milestone in the educational development of the state.

Little wonder it is that the school was initially referred to as Capital School, the centre of excellence where only the most brilliant children were sent to receive their education. The school later assumed the name “Model School”, which was to serve the same purpose of its establishment. But Government Model School, Bida was particularly meant to take care of primary school pupils only. However, with the coming of the new National Policy on Education in 1981, when Common Entrance Examination, Junior Secondary Certificate Examination (JSSCE) and Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) were sat for concurrently afterward.

At the inception, the school was accommodated near the Emir’s Palace at Ndayako Primary School. Because of the relative increase in population of pupils, down floor of the story building located off club road, GRA, Bida belonging to Late Alhaji Bagudu Waziri (BCCC) was used to accommodate more pupils. The school finally moved to its present permanent location along A.A Kure crescent, Bida in 1978.

Indeed, no organization can survive without an administrator. Since 1975, various principals were appointed to administer the school, although between 1975 and 1983, they were referred to as headmasters and headmistresses.

The following distinguished personalities served as Principals of Government Model School, Bida from 1975 to date. They are:

Alhaji Muhammadu B. Ndayako, 1975

Hajiya Masatso A. B Umar- 1977-1978

When the school was upgraded to a secondary school level in 1983, in collaboration with Bida Local Education Authority, teachers were being sent to the school to complement the effort of Niger state Ministry of Education. Because of continuous mutual cooperation and the existing relationship between the school and L.E.A, the tradition is still continuing. In that regard, Headmasters are appointed by the L.E.A and sent to the school to coordinate the activities of L.E.A staff. This notwithstanding, the Principal is the overall boss of the school. The names of the Headmasters in chronological order are:

Mallam Idris M. Yakubu – 1985-1998

Mallam Liman B. Aliyu Dagi, 1998-2004

Mallam Yusuf Yabagi, (Late) 2004

Mallam Abdullahi Muhammed Lati, 2004

Mal Abdullahi Kangi Makun

Mal Haruna Usman Sarki

However, the first people to be appointed as Assistant Headmaster are:

Mallam Haruna Usman Sarki, Assistant H/M (1), 2003 to date

Alh. Adamu Ibrahim, Assistant H/M (II) 2003 to date.

The senior Masters are:-

Mallam Saba Muhammed, 1999

Haruna Sarki, 1999-2003

Mallam Muhammed Husseinin Bida 2003 to date.

This write up will not be complete without mentioning Hajiya Rahmatu Ndayako, the immediate past Education Secretary, Bida Local Government. A woman of courage and determination. A lover of educational development, who is always ready to assist in any form for the progress of education,. She is a woman that has the interest of teachers at heart. Model School, Bida is indeed grateful to her.

In case we forget, Mrs. Balikisu Y. Ndanusa assumed office in Government Model School, Bida in 1996. The arrival of Mrs. Bilikisu Y. Ndanusa to the school to take over the mantle of leadership had brought an unprecedented transformation in every sphere of the school activities. The school has progressed tremendously in terms of infrastructure, academics, students and staff welfare. The achievements are so numerous that one finds it difficult to find a place to first hack a tree.

Nevertheless, the main aim of any academic institution is to strive to achieve the goal for which it was set up. On the arrival of Mrs. Balikisu Ndanusa the first things she tried to put in place were the renovation of the classrooms, realizing the fact that a beautiful environment stimulates the students’ interest in learning. Her aim in that direction was indeed achieved.

Furthermore, she tried to mend fences by seeking for competent part-time teachers to make up for the shortage of staff. This also she achieved. It is on record that by the grace of God Almighty, many part-time teachers have become permanent staff, some posted to the school, and some posted to other schools. The struggle still continues for others. Today, part-time teachers form a significant percentage of the total number of teaching staff. Added to the staff list are youth Corp members sent to the school. In fact, this year 2005, the school has received about 20 Corp Members.

In addition she readily made available, to the best of her ability all that would facilitate the teaching and learning, in terms of instructional materials, staff and students’ seats, and restructuring of various departments and committees for efficient performance. In actual fact, the school was at its peak as soon as various machineries were put in motion. The results of the SSCE, JSSCE and National Common Entrance for primary pupils since the arrival of the present Principal have been so wonderful. This singular achievement is the culminating effort of both the Principal and staff on the one hand and the collective individual effort and cooperation of the students on the other hand. Again, since the establishment of Government Model School to date, it is pertinent to note that its products have become achievers in life. Those former pupils could be found in every strata of the Nigerian society as lawyers, chartered Accountants, Councilors, Engineers, Teachers, Doctors and so on.

The most outstanding ex-students of Government Model School, two of which are in Faculty of Medicine Usman Danfodiyo Univeristy Sokoto: Muhammaed Muhammed, who was particularly rated one of the best students in 1998. The other is Ibrahim N. Umar.

The excellent performance of the school in SSCE (NECO and WAEC) for some years in succession won the school the Best Teacher Award by Northern State Education Summit in April, 2002. The award was presented to the Principal at Kaduna by the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (Turakin Adamawa). The award ceremony was finally held at the Wadata Palace. The occasion was attended by many dignitaries including the late Etsu Nupe, Alhaji (Dr) Umaru Sanda Ndayako (may his soul rest in perfect peace).

The day also witnessed the presentation of prizes to the winners of 2002 Ndaduma Nupe Quiz competition, in which Government Model School, Bida won 1st position in the females’ category. Moreover, the school had recorded many successes in various academic and literary competitions. Some of those successes include: 1st position in all primary schools Drama competition at the Town hall, Bida in 1990; 2nd position in NYSC Right Talent Quiz Competition in 1996, 1st position by Obruche Opkerhe in the National Mathematics Competition organized by the National Mathematical Center Abuja in 1996. Similarly, another student, Oyegoke S. Tope won 1st position in the same Mathematics Competition and in 2002 was awarded scholarship for three years consecutively. The mathematics competitions were won at junior level. In addition, the Annual Schools Carnival of Arts and Festival of Songs (ASCAFS) in 1999, the school came 3rd in craft, 3rd in song and 2nd in drama competitions respectively. The school therefore won 3rd position in the overall result of the 1998 and 1999 ASCAF at Minna. Furthermore, in 1997, the school won 3rd position in the Child- to –Child Children’s Day Drama Competition. Other competitions won by the school were all schools Computer Competition by AMITEC Computers with 1st position in practical and 2nd position in theory, 5th in Oluwole Awokoya Memorial Competition in Chemistry for all secondary schools in Niger state. And in 2004 National Reading Competition, the school came 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the state level. The list is inexhaustible. It is, however, worthy of note that in all situations, there is usually a spectacular one. In the 2004 Nigeria Stock Exchange’s 5th Annual Essay Competition, Joy C. Offodire of SSII (SSSIII in 2005) became state winner in the secondary schools category. She received the award at the Shehu Musa Yar Adua Centre Abuja on 30th November, 2004 after being lodged in Nicon Noga Hilton Hotel, Abuja the previous day.

The enabling environment for winning all these competitions were made possible first, with the help of God almighty and then the effort of the Principal, Mrs Bilikisu Y. Ndanusa. Apart from the aforementioned successes, most of the staff and students of Government Model School, Bida are computer literate today. This is made possible because of E.T.F. intervention scheme, in which 4 sets of computers were given to the school. The computer laboratory in which the computers were installed was named after the late Etsu Nupe, Alhaji (Dr) Umaru Sanda Ndayako. Today, the school has 7 sets of computers as a result of donation of 3 more sets by the Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar. Computer science had been introduced in the school curriculum. The students take lessons in both theory and practical aspects of computer. However, the computer laboratory has been equipped with an 8 HP Nissan generator donated by the late Etsu Nupe, Alhaji (Dr) Umaru Sanda Ndayako.

The nutritional value of poultry cannot be over emphasized. In realization of this, the school built a poultry pen named after the late Etsu Nupe’s Mother, Hajiya Aisha Ngogo, which was simultaneously commissioned along with the school computer laboratory in 2003. The poultry keeping has benefited both members of the school community and the general public. Broilers, layers, pulleys and eggs are being sold out from time to time. Thanks to the young farmers club headed by the H.O.D Vocation, Mallam Alfa Muhammed) now at National Cereals Research Institute, Bida( assisted by Mallam Ibrahim Tyabo and Mr. Elisha Jiya (presently both at FUT Minna).

Library is the power house of every educational institution. In spite of the poor state of our library facilities, the school administration is always working hard to satisfy both the staff and the students with relevant teaching and learning materials through the library. Various relevant textbooks, magazines, newspapers, journals, periodicals, chart and other related research materials are bought and kept in the library. In a bid to have a reputable and efficient library, a request had earlier been made to, senator Isah Muhammad to assist the school in the building of a befitting library complex. We are, therefore, using this medium to appeal to individuals and organizations to come to the aid of the school by building an equipped a library complex for the school.

The tremendous role being played by the school P.T.A can be said to be a legacy left behind by late Alhaji Saidu Madaki (May his soul rest in perfect peace. (Amen), who was the school PTA Chairman for many years before the incumbent PTA chairman took over the leadership. Under his leadership, PTA built a block of four classrooms and donated a bus in 1982. Since- then the bus had been refurbished twice. First, in 1998 and second, in May 2005.

The school PTA under the chairmanship of Mr. I.O Fatoba of NCRI Badeggi, apart from bridging the gap between the parents and the school on one hand and the PTA and government on the other hand had recorded many successes. These include furnishing of the school computer laboratory, starting the building of the new science laboratory before Niger state Government took over. Other achievements of the school PTA are sponsoring of some literary competitions, financially contributing to the success of the annual speech and prize giving ceremonies and the 2003 prestigious Teachers’ Merit Award. To be specific, the contributions of PTA to the development of the school are so numerous that there is little space to mention them. Mr. I.O. Fatoba remains the chairman of all PTA chairmen of Government Model Schools in Niger State.

The path to greatness is very narrow with lot of unfamiliar hills, valleys, potholes and thorns”. In spite of the effort of Mrs. Bilkisu Y. Ndanusa in collaboration with the school PTA, the school has some uncompleted projects that have become stumbling blocks to effective administration and academic activities. Apart from the administrative block that has been completed and put to use, the uncompleted projects are 3 blocks of classrooms, a block of science laboratory, school fence and two blocks of dormitory. All these structures have been left uncompleted since the year 2000. The laboratory in use now is an improvised one. It is a room meant for a class, too small and can only accommodate few students.

Apart from inadequate space, the school lacks relevant science equipment. Sometimes the school loans materials from sister schools to be able to carry out practical lessons. Similarly, the incompletion of the school fence has made the total control of the students impossible. The school had to improvise fence in order to curtail the movement of students in and out of the school.

Finally, the school is calling on the old pupils and students of the school that the need for them to form Old Boy’s Association is overdue. We are single-handedly commending the effort of Hon. (Barrister) Mohammed Kudu Ndayako, an old boy of the school for donating to the school during the 2nd speech and prize giving ceremony. He is also making contact with his friends and colleagues toward the formation of Old Boy’s Association. Indeed, he is a role model worthy of emulation by all the Bida. Very worthy of mention is His Royal Highness, the Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar CFR for his personal donations to the school. may God continue to guide him to the straight path. AMEN. The school wishes to thank Alhaji Baba Abubakar, a philanthropist and all the friends of Model School. The school is also grateful to Niger State Ministry of Education, the immediate past commissioner of Education Alhaji Osman Gwarizhiko, the incoming Honorable commissioner of Education Alhaji Abdullahi Jibrin Gbongbo, the Permanent Secretary, Alhaji Sonmaji Lapai, the PRO, Ministry of Education, all the Directors and Zonal Directors of Education as well as the entire staff of Ministry of Education. God bless.
