Another Record Set: Mahama Delivers Fully Renovated Dormitories To Alma Mater

It's the 60th anniversary of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale, and former President John Dramani Mahama is making the news with support to the school. The school is his alma mater and as such he owed them so much not to miss a single opportunity to show his appreciation for helping him become what he is today. 

The former President took to himself the challenge to renovate two old dormitories that housed the Cabral and Gbanzaba students. From the exterior to its interiors, these two separate blocks were given a facelift befitting of accommodating these young future leaders of the school.

Mr Mahama remarked that it gave him so much of a fulfilment executing this project for his school. At this moment during the school's 60th anniversary celebration, Mr Mahama is hopeful he could use the opportunity to reconnect with his colleagues and seniors whom he had long lost contact with. 

"Cabral House was my home during my days at Ghanasco, and it was a nostalgic feeling returning and reconnecting with some of my mates and seniors on Friday. 

Renovating and modernizing the building that houses the Cabral and Gbanzaba Houses, when the state of the structure was brought to my attention, is my hearty contribution to improving conditions for learning for our children," he wrote on Facebook.

But there is something really interesting about this project. The former first lady, Lordina Mahama supported the husband to do the repainting of the girls dormitory, which is known as the Lordina Block. 

That wasn't all. She sponsored the replacement of nets and other items for the girls dormitory to make life more comfortable for these young girls. As an old student, just as the husband, this means so much for them. 

Surely, they will be the talk of the school for years ahead, and especially this particular anniversary. From the camps of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) this could turn into another political debate as it will count to Mr Mahama's record of accomplishment as an opposition leader.
