The people of Guonuo in the Wa East District of the Upper West Region have expressed their dissatisfaction over the failure of teachers posted to the school at the community to stay in the community to teach, but prefer staying in Wa.
A Youth Activist at the community, Abdulai Waris revealed that, the teachers spend some of their instructional hours traveling to and fro the Guonuo community on daily basis.
While commending the efforts of female students in the community, Mr. Waris however, bemoaned the increasing cases of teenage pregnancies in the community. He is therefore calling on the Ghana Education Service and Non-Governmental Organizations into Girl Child Education in the region, to come to their aid to combat the menace of teenage pregnancy in the community and the Electoral Area at large.
Mr. Mahama Yahaya, another resident of the community, however, explained that the teachers are not at fault for staying in Wa, instead of Guonuo. He argued that, the teachers are used to electricity and cannot afford sleeping in darkness, as the community has no electricity.
