NDC faithful clear weeds over Mahama’s E-Block after being abandoned 7 years by the Akufo-Addo gov’t
Over 95 per cent completed Mahama’s E-Block has been abandoned in the bush at New Edubiase Apagya in the Ashanti region.
The facility, which is yet to see the light of day, has been left to rot. The almost completed project is at the mercy of the weather.
Weeds have taken over major portions of the facility that has been neglected for years, leading to the roof falling apart.
The development is a worry for residents in the area.
Chief of Apagya, Baffuor Gyankokor II believes the completion and operation of the project will bring enormous benefit to the area.
“I seem not to understand why the facility is not operational looking at the amount of money sunk into putting up such a project. We don’t have senior high school in this area and for that matter our children have to continue their second cycle education elsewhere. At least, the operation of this school will open up this area and boost economic activities as well. Government should finish up the work and make the facility operational,” he narrated.
At the time of visit, some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress were seen clearing the weeds around the facility.
National Organizer of NDC, Joseph Yammin said they will go round the country to protect the legacy of the party.
He chastised the NPP for neglecting the educational facility.
“Since 2017, nothing significant has been done to complete the project. It’s even difficult to identify the building from the roadside. So since it’s our legacy and the NPP is adamant in completing and making it operational, we will continue to protect the facility from further rotting away. We will see to the completion of the school as soon as we return in government,” he indicated.
Until work resumes on the project, the facility will continue to rot.
