DCE cautions headteachers against imposing unauthorized fees on children

The Gomoa West District Chief Executive, Mr Theophilus Aidoo-Mensah, has cautioned heads of basic schools to desist from imposing unauthorised fess on pupils.

He said any headteacher caught doing that would face serious sanction.

Mr Aidoo-Mensah said this at Ajumakoansa-Brebiano and Asempanyin when it came out during his tour of communities that Junior High School final year students were being made to pay GH¢40.00 as Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) fee instead of GH¢20.00.

He advised headteachers to get approval from their Parent-Teacher Association and the District Directorate of Education before they could impose any levy on children.

The DCE urged headteachers to accept back to school a girl who had delivered.

He cautioned men to desist from having illicit affairs with school girls and appealed to traditional rulers to impose severe sanction on men who impregnate school girls.

Mr Aidoo-Mensah said the New Patriotic Party Government had disappointed the people of Gomoa District by not executing any meaningful project in the District during the eight years they were in office.

He said Kyiren Nkwanta-Brebiano road, which was awarded on contract for re-tarring in 2000 by the then NDC government, was halted when NPP took over administration in 2001 and abrogated the contract and nothing had been done on the road up to now.

He said work was going on on two roads, Mumford to Dado and Ankamu to Afranse roads.

The DCE assured the people that President Mills would not renege on the promises he had made to Ghanaians and that the “Better Ghana” he had promised was on course.

He urged them to rally behind the Government to ensure that it was returned to office in the 2012 general elections to continue with the good services it had been rendering to the people.

Mr Cosmos Amissah, Coordinator of Local Enterprise and Skills Development Programme (LESDEP) explained to the people the Programme and urged the youth to avail themselves of the opportunity.
