Kofi Ayamga Anamboyine, the Coordinator for the Free Senior High School in the Upper East Region, is worried about the negative effect of the protracted conflict in Bawku on the education of children within the Upper East Region who have been placed in schools within the area.
When Mr. Anamboyine spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Thursday, March 2, 2023, he was worried that the continued conflict continued to force parents and students to shy away from the Bawku Senior High Technical School; a situation that is driving a huge number of students to other schools in Garu and Tempane.
The Free SHS Coordinator, while assuring students and parents that for years, the conflict had steered clear of schools and hospitals, also called on the indigenous people of the area to strive for peace.
“Another serious activity that is confronting us is in the Bawku zone, Currently, some of the students and their parents don’t want to go to Bawku SHTS because of the insecurity in the area. That is the negative implication of the conflict.”
“We have to appeal to our sisters and brothers in Bawku that conflicts do not help so if they can stop it for the peace and development of the area [it would help]. Students that are placed there, they are entertaining fears of going. Most of them are going to Garu, Tempane. It would also be more than the Headmasters declared. That is the challenge,” he said.
