The management of Federal College of Education (FCE) Yola has provided no fewer than 1,500 cartons of indomie noodles to about 3000 students living in the campus

The management also provides free transportation to both staff and off campus students to help them cope with challenges of daily movement to and from the collage.

Announcing the measures while unveiling the packages at the school campus Friday, the provost of the collage, Prof. Mohammed Usman Degereji said N7 million naira was spent in procuring the indomie noodles.

Degeriji said the current economic realities caused by the fuel subsidy removal in the country informed his management decision to cushion the effects by intervening in transportation and food security for staff and students.

Degereji stated that the management met and approved the N7million for the purchase of the noodles for the students while the college’s buses are fueled and dedicated to conveying staffs to and fro of college during and after working hours.

Responding on behalf of the college’s staff, Abubakar Bello, Dean school of sciences expressed gratitude to the management for coming to their aid at this trying time.

Bello said it is no longer news the fuel pump price has been causing a lot of havoc to distress to both the staff and the students commending the management for the timely intervention.

He called on other administrators in the country to emulate Professor Degereji’s style of leadership.

In her remarks on behalf of the students of the College, Miss Joy Angelou thanked the management for the support stressing that it will go a long way in boosting their academic performance.
