Ablakwa’s Lateness To Function Angers Volta Chiefs

Pupils and teachers of Adaklu Goefe Primary School in the Volta Region spent the entire school hours of last week Thursday away from class in a long wait for a Deputy Minister for Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

He was expected to handover to contractors, a site for the construction of a Community day SHS for the area.

The short ceremony which was scheduled to start at 9am eventually started about 4pm, keeping pupils, teachers as well as the chiefs and elders of Adaklu, stationed for hours.

The chiefs and elders who run out of patience confronted the DCE Mr. Emmanuel Sky Ganaku who had obviously run out of excuses.

Some members of the gathering questioned what they described as “needless delay” and described it as an “unfortunate wasted of productive hours.”

“Just because of some sword cutting ceremony the whole day is wasted; the elders are here with the school kids, worst of, no information flow. Tell us what is going on and the chiefs are threatening to go away,” they lamented.

The pupils who were initially cheerful; drumming and singing with high expectations got exhausted along the way and had to sit on the bare floor, while others started playing.
