Kwaku Bonsam said he had also constructed a 12-unit primary school- block, comprising kindergarten and primary facilities and a junior high school and a computer centre. He said he had also renovated an abandoned cocoa shed comprising 10 rooms to accommodate police personnel in the area, at the cost of GH¢17,000 and purchased a 47-seater bus at the cost of GH¢280,000 to convey the pupils to school.
According to Kwaku Bonsam, he is paying teachers’ of the school monthly salaries of GH¢5,800. He said the projects were his personal contribution towards the development of the community. Mr Atuhene, Headmaster and Mr Seth Osei Mensah, Assistant Headmaster of the school thanked Kwaku Bonsam for his assistance to the community.
