The Chiefs of Akrokerri in the Adansi North District have expressed their unhappiness at the Ministry of Education for ignoring Asare Bediako Senior High School in the recent distribution of buses to schools in the country.
Nana Kwasi Buobae II, the Regent of the Akrokerri Divisional Council, said “It appears the government has rejected the Asare Bediako SHS”.
Speaking at an educational forum at Akrokerri, the Regent said Nananom have been spending funds to hire buses for the school anytime there was a schools’ and colleges’ sports festival and “with the current situation, we still have to continue to find money for the school.”
He expressed regret that though the previous and present governments had assured them of school bus their promises had not been fulfilled.
Nana Kwasi Buobae II, who is also the Akomehene of Akrokerri, said the school also lacked a number of facilities and appealed to the government to assist them.
He said the school needed a hostel and street lights to the area to help guarantee the security of the students at night.
He also appealed for the provision of computer laboratory to the school to train the students in ICT.
Nana Kwasi Buobae II said that education was the foundation for community development and therefore the Divisional Council would not relent in its efforts at supporting senior higher education in the area.
