Pupils, teachers, and opinion leaders of the Saabisi community in the Kassena Nankana Municipality of the Upper East Region have expressed joy at the initiative taken by their Member of Parliament to renovate their dilapidated basic school. 

The school, since its establishment, community members say has never received any facelift despite numerous appeals to authorities.  

They added that the condition of school has caused many pupils to drop out.

The Assembly Member of the Natugnia Electoral Area, speaking with Moses Apiah, reporter at A1 Radio, said pupils now take their own furniture to the school to learn. 

“As we speak now pupils are now bringing their own chairs to sit and learn. The school does not have doors, windows, in fact, the structure is terrible to even allow your ward to sit in there and learn. It is bad, I must admit.”

Mr. Alemya added that he made efforts at the assembly level and with other individuals for support, but little has come of it.

“Last, it was about our primary school which some individuals came to support. But now the Junior High School is worse off than the primary school. I’m praying the MP will come to our aid as he promised us.”

Commenting on the issue, the Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central, Sampson Tangombu Chiragia, indicated that the initiative has been part of his numerous plans targeted at making education attractive to pupils and teachers in the constituency. 

According to the legislator, quality education for his people has been his number one priority.

“Politics is about growth, growth that is based on collective efforts by all and sundry. And how do we grow if we can’t invest evenly in quality education that will improve our human resources, that is our children. And our children are our future, and if we do it right, we will have a better future, but if we fail, then, we have lost it all. So, aside from renovating Saabisi JHS, Bonia basic school will also be renovated with ultramodern teaching and learning devices. As some of you have already seen; renovating works at Bonia JHS is ongoing and funds have also been released for the same to happen at Saabisi JHS.”

Touching on some of the educational initiatives since assuming office two years ago, the legislator noted that his target was and continues to be, to end the furniture deficit among basic schools in the area. 

“You know, my target is to end furniture deficit as soon as possible, so, I have been able to hand over 250 metal dual desks, and also 250 are ready at the Municipal Assembly to be handed over in the coming days. Again, an ultramodern library at Korania which will soon be Commissioned is ready.  Also, I facilitated and supported over 217 students into various tertiary institutions including UTAS, Bosco’s & Nursing Colleges, organised and sponsored certified IT training for 179 youth in Navrongo as well as provided various scholarships to 232 tertiary students. And the just-ended 2022 BECE, I supported all the 1,946 candidates with Mathematical sets. And also, furnished the Municipal Education Directorate with Office equipment including 8 laptops and 5 printers. So, I will continue to do my bit to ensure that quality education for all is achieved here.”

He therefore called on the constituents as well as relevant stakeholders to continue to render their support for the growth of the area.
