Fumigation exercise raids GST School off bed bugs

Mr Felix Mensah, Senior House Master of Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) has expressed gratitude to the Old Giants Association of the academic facility for ridding the environment of bed bugs.


Mr Mensah said the fumigation exercise has brought relief to students and the school authorities, thereby facilitating teaching and learning.

The Senior House Master who spoke to Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview lauded the engineering mechanism used by Jem Intercontinental Services Ghana, the contractors to rid the school of the blood sucking insects.

Mr Mensah attributed the bugs infestation to lack of discipline on the part of students and congestion.

The Old Giants Association initiated a massive fumigation exercise led by Mr John Tsimese, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Jem Intercontinental Services Ghana Limited.

The estimated GH₡ 66, 000.00 fumigation exercise was sponsored by the old Giants with the school contributing GH₡ 9,000.

Mr Tsimese, the CEO of the Fumigation Company said unsanitary conditions was mainly the cause of the problem.

He could not fathom why heaps of rubbish were left in the dormitories unattended too.

The CEO of Jem Intercontinental Services Ghana therefore prayed the school authorities to step up discipline and institute regular cleaning of the environment to avoid reoccurrence of the phenomenon.

Master Kariya Sharif, General Art one students of House Five told the GNA: “We can now have a good night sleep and wake up with fresh energy to learn.”
