Gombe Considers World Bank Loan To Check Erosion Menace At Federal College


=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === In its bid to check the erosion menace at the Federal College of Education (Technical) Gombe, the state government is considering applying for a World Bank.

This was disclosed by the Deputy Governor, Manassah Jatau in Gombe on Tuesday when a Presidential Visitation Panel, led by Prof. Kenneth Okiongbo, visited the school, during which he said that the state was embarking on the project because its citizens were beneficiaries of the school, despite the school belonging to the Federal Government, adding that the state government had earlier intervened in erosion control in the school through the diversion of some major structures at the Mega Park located very close to the school.
