Pupils of Kromoase D/A Basic School in the Ashanti Region's Atwima Kwanwoma District have petitioned the government to finish a six-unit classroom block that has been abandoned for years.The Ashanti regional NPP chairman, Mr Bernard Antwi Bosiako aka chairman Wontumi, who is also the project's contractor, is being accused by the villagers of abandoning the project.
They said that the school lacked a restroom facility as well as a boundary wall. Chairman Wontumi has been tasked by the chief and the people with removing all of the chief's equipment from the site.President Nana Addo Dankwa Akkuffo Addo started this six-unit classroom block in 2019.The development of the school block was intended to satisfy the school's infrastructural needs.Students now learn under an open canopy shed, according to a visit to the school.
Several requests have been made to the Atwima kwanwoma district Assembly, according to several people but have not achieved any results.Residents who spoke on the condition of anonymity expressed their dissatisfaction with the situation, which they say is harming their academic performance.
Concerned citizens used the opportunity to make an urgent appeal to the government and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for assistance.Nana Opoku Karikari okogyedom II, the chief of the area, wept about the project's delay.He urged the Region's authorities to see that the school block was completed in order to relieve overcrowding in the remaining facilities.
