You will recall that, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana has created controversy when he asked the Chief of Aflao, the paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional area, Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti to complete the project by himself while speaking in an interview.
His comments came after Torgbui Fiti gave the government through the Ministry of Education a four-month ultimatum to open the abandoned E-Block started by former President John Dramani Mahama.
According to the Chief, the Community Day Senior High School has stalled since 2016 after President John Dramani Mahama left office.
The GH¢9 million project which was part of some 200 classroom blocks the John Dramani Mahama’s administration started was supposed to have some 26 classrooms attached and 5 departments including a science block.
Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti speaking with the Minority side of the Education Committee who toured the uncompleted school buildings in the Ketu South constituency says, government’s approach to education is appalling.
“After senior high school education, the next degree that my people have to do is to go to the border to go and do kayayo, no school. The only school that we have is the RC Senior High School that belongs to the Catholic Mission Minor Seminary. So this thick population have no place to go and people sit down in that big hall called parliament and not thinking about Aflao, a place after the Tema Harbour , the next revenue generation is from the Aflao border.” He said.
“I had to push the former President Mahama for the structure to be constructed over there. I had to be running from here to Accra begging. Should we beg for education?”
But Mr Akufo-Addo questioned why the Chief is giving the sector minister an ultimatum.
He said on Accra based Peace FM Thursday October 21 that “Many of the E-blocks are being worked on across the country.
“Is he [Aflao Chief] the one to give the minister ultimatum then he should go ahead and complete the project.”
It is believed that, now the chief and his people have indeed completed the project and opened it for admission.
