Abensu (G/R), July 17,
GNA – The chiefs and people of Abensu in the Ga West Municipality, have
appealed to the municipal assembly to build a school for the community.

Mr. Amos Abutu, the
assembly member for Afiaman electoral area, said this had become necessary to
end the situation where children had been traveling long distances to access
education.

He indicated that
there were in excess of 500 children of school-going age in the community.

He made the appeal
after he led the people to clear a stretch of land demarcated for the school
project.

Mr. Abutu said the
lack of a school had become a huge bother, blaming this for poor academic
performance of the children, who often returned from school tired and unable to
either do their homework or have enough rest for the next day.

“They are forced to
wake up early in the morning and return home late. This has been the routine
and it could not continue this way”, he added.

He also highlighted
the need to put into good shape the 15 kilometre road linking the area with
Pokuase for smooth evacuation of farm produce to marketing centres.
