President Nana Akufo-Addo has asked the Paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional Area to “complete” the abandoned E-block community day senior high school in the area himself if he is frustrated about the delay.
Torgbui Adzonu-Gaga Amenya Fiti V gave the government a four-month deadline to finish the building for use on Wednesday, October 20.
The school, which was built during the Mahama administration, is nearly 90% complete. It has 26 classrooms and five departments, including a science block, but construction has been halted since 2016.
When Minority members of Parliament’s Education Committee visited the abandoned E-blocks in the Volta Region, the chief demanded that the area get its fair share of the national cake by finishing the project.
However, in response to the demand on Accra-based Peace FM on Thursday, the President joked, “Is he the one going to give the Minister of Education an ultimatum?”
Following the statement, President Akufo-Addo assured the traditional leader that his government is determined to continue projects begun by his predecessor.
He emphasized that plans are being carried out to finish the projects and put them to good use.
“For some of the projects, we will undoubtedly prepare and complete them ourselves.” But, to the greatest extent possible, I have given you these examples so that you can see that, despite the propaganda, [we are working on them],” he said.
