Chief Closes Down Amonom JHS

The Chief and people of Akyem-Amonom in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region have expressed worry over the inability of the District assembly to roof a junior high school structure built by the commmunity.

The Chief of Amonom, Barima Asamoah Padie III, stated this last Sunday at Amonom as part of the Akwasidae celebrations.

According to him, the school has closed down due to a lot of challenges and has therefore appealed to NGOs and organizations to come to their aid.

He said the situation needs to be solved as early as possible in order not to have any effect on the pupils especially the final year students. Barima Padie III stated that the school used to operate from the premises of the Presbyterian Church but said the activities of the church sometimes deny the pupils from going to school.He said the situation needs to be taken care of before it affects the future of the pupils.

The traditional ruler lamented that numerous appeals to the district assembly and the member of parliament, Honourable Amoako-Atta have proved futile.He was worried that the community had not got any help despite their readiness to support.He also mentioned lack of health centre,portable water,good roads and others as most wants of the people in the community.

Barima Padie III however was worried that the assembly member eventhough a teacher in the school has failed to intercede on behalf of the community at assembly meetings but pledged to do his best to help solve most of the problems his people faces in the community.

He threatened not to engage politicians in the 2016 elections if nothing is done about the development of the community.
