The chief of Akitibomo in the Kwabre East District of Ashanti region, Nana Mpianim Baafi II, has appealed to the Government and other stakeholders to help provide a modern health centre in the community.
He noted that the population of Akitibomo kept increasing with foreign settlers and is surrounded by several communities, but currently has no even a single Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound to cater for the health needs of the people in the community.
Nana Mpianim Baafi made the appeal in an interview with Ghanaian Watch after he showed this reporter the various infrastructural facilities challenges facing the community including poor road network, inadequate classroom blocks , lack of health and toilet facilities and market centre at Akitibomo in the Kwabre East District of the Ashanti region.
On his part the Unit Committee Secretary of the area, Mr. David Kwaku Boateng called on the government to construct teacher’s bungalow to help the teachers to increase supervision of the pupils and improve on efficiency and effective teaching and learning.
“The major problem causing depopulation of the school is as a result of the teachers traveling from a long distance to the school.Even some of them report to school after 9 am or 10 am
This has become a source of worry to the parents and so many of them have withdrawn their wards from the school, making the school retrogressing.
We are, therefore, appealing to government to construct a teacher’s bungalow for the school to enable the teachers to report to school early to intensify supervision of the school children and improve teaching and learning.”
