Residents in Bembisi, a community in the Kassena-Nankana West District of the Upper East Region, are worried about the quality of education in the area.

The only school in the area, Amenga-Etego Basic School, currently lies in ruins. According to residents, the school can only boast of a single pavilion. The pavilion was established in the late 80s by the late former president, Jerry John Rawlings.

The Assembly Member for Nabilingo Electoral Area, Albert Aloore Ayeriga, speaking to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show, said the situation does not allow children to grow interest in their education.

“Teaching and learning is always a problem. Students have to sit under trees in this 21st century to learn. It is a problem. What is there now is a pavilion that was established in 1989 by Jerry Rawlings. He decided to establish a pavilion for the school to begin. Since then, after a series of letters to duty bearers, they have failed to listen to us.”

“The current structure is even a death trap. It is not something that encourages the students to learn,” he said.

Meanwhile, the DCE for the area, Gerard Ataogye, explained that his attention had not been drawn to the situation, but insisted that once the Assembly Member had passed through A1 Radio’s platform to draw his attention, engineers from the Assembly would be dispatched to assess the situation.
