Do Aflao Paramount Chief deserves apology from the President of the Republic

Ghanaians, especially people of Aflao are shocked of a reply given by His excellency the President of the republic of Ghana instructing the paramount chief of Aflao townships to go and finish constructing the uncompleted Senior High School in Aflao.

The paramount chief of the Aflao traditional area, Torgbui Amenya Fiti has handed the government a four-month ultimatum to operationalize the E-block high school facility in the area.

He said , “The next place for revenue generation after the Tema Harbour is the Aflao border. So I had to push former President, John Mahama to put up that structure. I had to be running from here to Accra, begging. Should we be begging for education? If we have to beg for education before people can go to school, then I don’t know what we call democracy at all. Look at the structure, it’s almost 90 percent complete. The thieves are having a field day, going in there to have everything removed at will.”

The Paramount chief added,“The NPP government now has free SHS education, but my people are not benefitting because there is no school here. So I am giving the Education Minister up till February [2022] for the school to be completed”

“If we want our children to have access to quality education, these projects must be completed so that students in these areas can have access. I will fault the Minister because he says the projects have not been abandoned, so why do we see this one here.”

“We have only one SHS here in the jurisdiction. We spoke to the Mahama government, and they saw the need to put up one here to ease the burden here. Since 2016, it started well with good hope for the people. But in five years, whsat has been added is negligible. What will make something that was started on a good note still be on the first floor after five years? Not only me but my constituents are disappointed.”

Responding to the issue onboard, the president of the republic , responded and asked the Paramount Chief to go and finish the Senior High School in building the structures himself, this causes massive reactions on social media and leave many more people talking.
