Hon. Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, the Member of Parliament for Ellembelle Constituency in the Western Region, has donated Three Hundred (300) bags of cement to three communities in Anyinase North in Ellembelle district.
The charity according to the MP, will assist to renovate 3 Basic Schools namely; Wereko D/A primary school, Santasu D/A primary school and Amanokrom D/A primary school in the Anyinase North all in Ellembelle district.
The phase 1 of the donation on Friday, July 30, gave 100 bags of cement each to the three communities.
He further told New Day FM Journalist, Kaakyire Kwasi Afari_ that he is committed to connect some farming communities that are not benefiting from electricity in the area onto the National Grid as part of measures to ensure security during the night and improve standard of living.
The NDC MP charged the communities to ensure effective use of the cement to complete the renovation on time and assured to reward with furniture to the first runner-up in the mini competition.
Pupils at Santasu D/A primary school are studying under poor conditions and are in dire need of good infrastructure including ICT lab for studies.
And what makes the situation frightening, is the fact that pupils at the lower primaries (from primary One-Six,) share a death-trap wretched and caked-mud classroom which building is almost on the verge of collapsing with part of it roofing hanging.
Mr Joseph Nyansu, the Headmaster of Santasu D/A primary school, speaking at the mini durbar for the donations lamented that all the classrooms with a total of 450 pupils, some of the walls have fallen, and there is no floor, all the classrooms are dusty and open.
The children often sit on the bare floor during lessons, whilst 4 pupils share a table and shaking desks.
The Odikro of Wereko community, Odikro Wereko expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Hon Emmanuel Armah Buah and prayed for God’s guidance and blessings for him in order to continue with the good works to better the lot of the people in the area.
According to the caretaker Chief, the track records of achievements by the Ellembelle MP qualifies him as the right person to serve as a running mate for the NDC party to secure victory for the party in 2024.
He describes the MP as “Second Kwame Nkrumah” due to his unprecedented transformation of change the MP has brought to Ellembelle district.
