Yobe State is one of the states ravaged by insurgency and terrorism. This has left public infrastructures and utilities at the lowest level possible. In addition to the general decay, there is more or less basic educational crisis in the region which has produced more out of school children in Northern Nigeria than in the southern counterpart. According to 2006 census, Karasuwa has an area of 1,162 km² and a population of 106,992. Basically, the people predominantly live in Karasuwa, which is 70 percent Manga tribe, which originated from sub-Kanuri tribe. Most residents are farmers, both in towns and villages.

It cannot be more urgent than now to track/monitor development interventions in the region especially national and sub-national budgetary appropriations while providing oversight to special funds for the reconstruction of Yobe State- one of the theatres of terrorism. Therefore, Follow The Money Team has activated #ConstructWachakal to track NGN 15 million for the Construction of 4 (4) classrooms at Wachakal PS, Wachakal, Karasuwa LGA, Yobe State.

We invite the general public to get involved in the campaign today and help us in this campaign so that Wachakal community will have access to basic education by joining us on www.ifollowthemoney.org
