Deputy Ranking on Parliament’s Select Committee on Education Clement Apaak has told the President to go to Oborpah and Sekesua if he wants evidence that his government has abandoned Community Day Senior High Schools started by the John Dramani Mahama administration.
President Akufo-Addo in an interview with Accra based Peace FM denied the allegation that several of the schools started by his predecessor had been abandoned.
He claimed that his government was continuing the projects which his government inherited.
Builsa South MP Dr. Clement Apaak however says the claim is not backed by the facts on the ground.
The Deputy Ranking on Parliament’s Select Committee on Education says NDC MPs on a recent tour of the Volta, Greater Accra and Eastern regions identified two schools that have seen no work since the Nana Akufo-Addo government came to power in 2017.
Dr. Apaak said the team also identified a school located at Apersua that had been completed but was not in use.
He cited a situation in Ziope where the contractor working on the Community Day School had gotten to 80% completion but was not been paid for the work he had done.
According to Dr. Apaak, out of the five certificates the contractor raised, only one was paid.
“We visited 6 E-Blocks: Apersua 100% but not in use over a year; Aflao 90%, stalled contractor not on site; Ziope 80%, contractor using own resources, raised five certificates got paid only one; Oborpah 70% abandoned; Sekesua 35% abandoned; and Goi 20% abandoned,” he stated
