The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) boss, Alfred Okoe Vanderpuyie yesterday held a peace talk with the West Maamobi youth for the construction of an 18 unit-class room block.
The Ghanaian times carried a story on Tuesday June 19, 2012 that “West Maamobi Youth oppose school project”.
According to the youth, the site for the project, known as the unity compound had been their football pitch for years.
The unity compound houses about six schools including Kanda, Newtown, and Kotobabi cluster of schools.
The school currently has about 2,000 pupils out of which 500 who are in Junior High Schools have displaced as a result of the abolition of the shift system.
The East Ayawaso sub-metro chairman, Alhaji Abdul Razak, also met with the youth to discuss the project and advised the youth to support the idea.
He appealed to them to reconsider their entrenched position, and allow the project to be implemented.
The public relations officer of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) Numo Blafo III, for his part said government would do everything possible to execute the project to provide the pupils a conducive place for teaching and learning.
“It is one of the millennium city projects that would help reduce failure among government school candidates who write their Basic Education Certificate Examination” he said.
The said project involves a computer, and science laboratories as well as other amenities required for effective learning.
The mayor thanked the youth for their co-operation and urged them to always support a worthy cause.
