School Collapse

The El-Chris the Truth Academy, a school for under-privileged children near New Dawhenya in the Ningo Prampram District, faces eviction as the landowner has opted to sell the property but the school is without the resources to pay.

Mr Chris Kudzo, the Proprietor of the School, said the more than 200 pupils from primary to the Junior High School level were under-privileged children within the new Dawhenya Community.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Tema, Mr Kudzo said the school was established some six-years-ago to take care of the children adding that none of them paid fees.

He said their feeding, uniforms, teaching and other expenses were born by him.

Mr Kudzo, also a Pastor at the End Time Redemption Church, said he used proceeds from the church to take care of the children.

He said he had informed the Ningo-Prampram District Education Directorate to register the school but it was yet to consider his request.

Mr Kudzo said the only option was to sell his three bedroom apartment to enable him to buy the property, which had been pegged at GHC95,000.00.

He called on benevolent organisations to go to the aid of the children, whose future hang in the balance.

Meanwhile efforts to contact the District Education Directorate to respond to the issues had not been successful.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
