A chief has reportedly instructed a school belonging to kindergarten children at Adumasa in the Ashanti Region to be demolished to make way for the construction of his palace.
A report filed by Myjoyonline says a rainstorm ripped off the roof of the Adumasa R/C Primary School which compelled authorities to build a temporary structure to house the children.
But when the pupils returned from midterm, the structure had been demolished which a great deal of inconvenience to the kids and the parents.
“About a week ago, some men started demolishing the structure, they claim it was the directive of the chief. I was very troubled when I heard this because the kids will have no place to study,” one parent complained.
Head of the Bretuo Clan of Adumasa, Nana Gyekye Amponsah who led the demolition claims he acted under instructions of the chief.
“The community contributed to build a place for the kids when their numbers increased. Recently, the chief informed me that the roof has been ripped off and he has informed the district assembly who has given him the nod to demolish the structure because of developed cracks.
“So the chiefs paid the carpenters, I only took care of the materials,” Nana Amponsah told Joy News.
In a bizarre twist, the chief- Nana Yaw Oppong admitted he has plans to build a new palace but never asked anyone to demolish the school.
