Commenting on the Report, the Speaker, Amaewhule, commended the sponsor of the Bill, Tekenari Granville, stating that the intendment of the Bill is laudable, because it simply seeks to take the Kalabari Girls High School, Buguma from the church that it was erroneously ceded to and return it to the government for effective management.

Commenting further, Amaewhule added that the essence of the Bill is to empower the State government to take over the administration of the school to make it serve the purpose for which it was built.
