In spite of the energy crisis the country is facing, the Unit School for the Deaf at Kyebi in the East Akyem Municipality of the Eastern Region had their lights disconnected Friday morning.
Speaking to the headmaster of the school on HOT FM afternoon political program, DWENE HO BIO, Mr Michael Kudzor stated the school was disconnected Friday Monday at 10:00 in the morning by the electricity company of Ghana, Kyebi District.
He indicated the situation is really affecting the school, considering the fact that they just got supply of fish from the harbour and fears the items will go bad if the lights are not reconnected and therefore pleaded with the electricity company of Ghana to help them out. But an interview with the Kyebi District Manager of ECG, Mr Nutsuga, he hinted that with an outstanding bill of five thousand Ghana cedis, nothing can be done about the pleas.
When asked why they have not been able to foot their bills, the headmaster complained that the school depends on grants given to them by the Ministry of Education and and for about a year now, the money has not been paid so they can’t pay off their bills until the government intervenes.
“It’s not a good management situation to allow an institution to owe you and still give them service” were the words of Mr Nutsuga, the Kyebi ECG manager.
When Boamah Darko Isaac, the Host asked him if nothing could be done about the schools situation, The ECG Boss questioned why the school has not received any subsidy since it’s a special school and therefore must receive assistance from the government. He pointed out that the situation is beyond his control now hence the school must find the means to pay for their bills.
Boamah Darko Isaac later pleaded with the ECG Boss on behalf of the school to tamper justice with mercy and connect the lights since it would affect these hearing impaired students greatly, but Mr Nutsugah insisted the issue was beyond his powers therefore he has no option than to settle their bills, nevertheless if something could be done, the eastern regional boss shout be the one to give out an order.
Meanwhile the headmaster of the school has indicated the school will be closed down if government refuses to pay grants which is affecting academic performance.
