Sylvester Vinks Danjuma, the Synergy President of Rotary Club Jalingo City who welcomed the District Governor, Goddy Nnadi, and his team to the State, said the community school was chosen after a careful feasibility study.

“The Club, after due consideration, has resolved to pay the NECO Exam fees for 15 female students which cost the Club N450,000.00 only.
