Ito-Ikin Community, known for its vibrant commercial activities and welcoming residents, has long faced challenges due to the absence of a secondary school. Despite having one of the highest primary school enrollments in the area, students have had to travel to neighbouring communities for their secondary education. This new development will soon change that scenario.

The new building will be a one-story structure with 12 classrooms, significantly enhancing educational and vocational opportunities for the children of Ito-Ikin Community, marking a new chapter in the community’s educational journey.
