The Paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional Area, Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti, has expressed his disappointment over the manner in which the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has abandoned certain important projects in his traditional area.
Speaking with the Minority side of Parliament’s Committee on Education, who toured the uncompleted school buildings in the Ketu South constituency, Torgbui stated that government’s approach to education is very appalling.
He has however given the Akufo-Addo-led NPP administration a four-month ultimatum to finish and commission the E-Block started by the John Mahama-led NDC administration, in order for the Aflao Community Day Senior High School to start operating.
According to him, “after senior high school education, the next degree that my people have to do is to go to border and go and do kayayo, no school.”
He also noted that “the only school that we have is the RC Senior High School that belongs to the Catholic Mission Minor Seminary. So this thick population has no place to go and people sit down in that big hall called parliament and do not think about Aflao, a place after the Tema Harbour, the next revenue generation is from the Aflao border.”
“I had to push the former President Mahama for the structure to be constructed over there. I had to be running from here to Accra begging. Should we beg for education?” he quizzed.
