MCE DONATES 20 BAGS OF CEMENT
AFTER WALL COLLAPSED ON A GIRL
A week after a classroom wall collapsed on the neck of 14-year girl of Abofour African Faith Junior High School (2), Constance Dwamena Darkowah, the municipal chief executive (MCE) for Offinso in the Ashanti region of Ghana, Solomon Kesse, has donated 20 bags of Super Rapid brand of cement to the school to support the reconstruction of the wall.
The donation was made on the evening of Friday, November 13.
Around 8am Friday, November 06, after her temperature had been taken in compliance with the corona virus protocols, Constance was entering her class for lessons when the wall collapsed on her leaving her with neck injury.
The 2018 best BECE results school in the municipality is an eyesore in terms of infrastructure and the situation compounded by the indifferent attitudes of the MCE and the member of parliament (MP), Ben Abdallah Bandah.
A 3-unit classroom block initiated by the MP in May and expected to have been completed in three months has stalled at the lentil. Phone calls by management of the school to the MP have proved futile and the MCE has denied knowledge of the project.
OFFINSO WATCH, Learning Matters and Health Campaign 🇬🇭Ghana, are relentlessly imploring the relevant stakeholders to avoid a third collapse in the school to save lives.
