Commissioning of a six-unit GETFund-funded classroom block at Iron City in Kasoa initiated through the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya East was boycotted by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Nuhu Adams who was to have jointly commissioned the GETFund project with the MP, Mavis Hawa Koomson last Monday.
Nobody knew the reason for the boycott of the ceremony after official notification had been given to him.
The MP was however assisted by the municipal director of education, Mrs Rita Rebecca Ackon to commission the newly-constructed six-unit classroom block for the Iron City community which did not have a public school.
Handing over the keys of the school to the municipal director of education, the MP for Awutu Senya East, Hawa Koomson said she had always thought about the progress of the her constituents after being elected into parliament in 2013 and that she had to lobby hard for this project to be brought to Iron City since the community badly needed a new public school.
“Out of the 275 MPs, only 45 MPs benefitted from these GETFund projects and the project did not come because I was called Hawa Koomson but because I worked so hard to get the project for my people,” she said.
She said she was going to build also an ICT centre for schools around the Ofankor community to help school children in information technology.
The municipal director of education who received the keys to the new school building on behalf of the municipal assembly appealed to the MP to help build kindergarten and a Junior High School for the Iron City Community.
She also appealed to members of the community to take good care of the school and ensure that their children also enroll in it.
Prior to the commissioning of the school building, the MP presented an ambulance valued at GH35,000 to the Muslim community at Kasoa.
