The Patron of National Association of Nzema students, who is also the founder of Shaip Africa foundation Mr Clement Clinton Blay on Saturday,19, has donated bags of Cement to Uthman Bin Affan Senior High School *”UBAISH”* to complete the school ongoing infrastructure projects.
The gesture according to the student’s group, follows a viral social media appeal by the school authorities to face-lift the infrastructure conditions of the school.
The Uthman Bin Affan Senior High School was inspired by the communal spirit of the Kamgbunli which brought them together to build their own Senior High School and is being run by the community’s own support through levis.
According to the girls prefect of the school, Mariam Issah, the academic record of the school is one of excellence and was poised to rub shoulders with first class second cycle institutions in Ellembelle district, Western Region and Ghana at large.
Marian Issah said, the school was established in 2008 through a community help spirit spearheaded by Sheik Mozu with 28 students, and has a current population of over 500 students.
However, she said, sadly the school had no staff common room, no library, inadequate drugs for patients, no place of convenience for both male and female students, lack of dining hall, inadequate infrastructure, and an old bus making transportation to new environment very unpleasant.
She told journalist, Kaakyire Kwasi Afari in a sideline interview that, the school is also in dire need of a girls’ dormitory, a befitting science laboratory, a duty post, and more classroom blocks to accommodate the new intake of students.
Having expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the National Association of Nzema students, she has appealed to government, philanthropist and Islamic foreign missions to come to the aid of the senior high school at Kamgbunli.
Speaking on behalf of the Patron, Mr Enoch Bazeh a.k.a Ghana Gas, who is the president of the National Association of Nzema students lauded the group Patron Mr. Clement Clinton Blay for his immense contribution towards the purchasing of the cement for the donation.
