Member of Parliament for Mion, Musah Abdul-Aziz Ayaaba on Tuesday, 17th May, 2021 cut sod for commencement of work at a cost of GH₵124,000.
Speaking to the media after ceremony, the legislator said the project will completed and ready for use within four weeks (one month).
According to Mr Ayaaba, the initiative is in fulfillment of a campaign promise after several appeals from educational and traditional authorities in the area.
“We were here in this very community to campaign during the run up to the 2020 elections and my good friend and mentor, Kennedy Agyapong made an appeal to the community that if I became the MP, he would support us put the classrooms in good shape to improve teaching and learning in the school”, he stated.
He continued “So we are here to fulfill our promise and Kennedy Agyapong is the brain behind what we are witnessing today for I am only a facilitator.”
On his part, Mr Amadu Haruna recalled the school deteriorating over the years coupled with destruction of the structure by rainstorm after several unsuccessful appeals to individuals and organizations.
However, Mr Haruna thanked both MPs (Mr Ayaaba and Kennedy Agyapong) for their intention.
