Mr George Mireku Duker, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tarkwa-Nusaem constituency, has handed over a six-unit classroom block for Nsuaem and a 20-seater water closet facility with 10 bathrooms to Tarkwa Na Aboso residents.

The classroom block, which was furnished with mono desks, marker boards and a computer laboratory with air conditioners.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Duker said the classroom block, which was constructed by the Coastal Development Authority (CODA), was part of his contribution to ensuring that education was accessible to every child in the constituency.

“I am grateful to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for aiding when l requested for a class block which he channelled through CODA for the residents of Nsuaem to have this building. l am excited the children have gotten a better place to learn,” he said.

The MP, who is also the Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, emphasized that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government was constructing a Senior High School at Nsuaem and expressed the hope that it would be ready by next academic.

“We are also constructing the Nsuaem township roads and a Polyclinic to ensure the citizens have quality health care delivery.”

Concerning the Tarkwa-Na Aboso project, the MP said the community made the request during the 2020 campaign but he decided to involve individuals or institutions.

The Tarkwa-Nusaem Municipal Assembly and the contractor, who agreed to execute the project had a contractual agreement as to how the mode of payment would be for him to recover his money, adding that Booboobo and Brahabebom would have similar projects to be financed under the Minerals Development Fund, Mr Duker said.

He urged the pupils to take their lessons seriously and also advised authorities of the school to ensure they put the facility to good use and maintain it regularly.

The Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Benjamin Kessie said, “in 2020 the MP said this classroom block would be constructed but some people claimed it was political talk because it was an election year.”

He noted that “even though this is not an election year the MP had made a lot of projects, especially in Nsuaem. The Assembly would ensure every project the MP had begun would be completed.”

Mr Kessie appealed to the traditional authorities to work closely with the MP and the Assembly to enable them to have more projects in every community.

Mr Kingsley Karikari-Bondzie, Deputy Chief Executive officer of CODA, explained that though Tarkwa-Nsuaem was not part of the communities they work in the MP through his hard work had paved the way for his constituents.

“It’s not only this project, but MP has also been able to lobby for a Community Based Planning Services compound (CHPS), six-unit classroom block, water facility and market at Amanteng, Booboobo, Essamang, Cyanide junction, Benso and Tetrem. These projects would be funded under the one million dollar per constituency project.”

Nana Kwamena Adade II, Divisional Chief of Nsuaem, thanked the MP and MCE for the successful completion of the projects.

“With this massive projects l am pleading with the community to honour the MP in the 2024 election,” he said.

Nana Adade II assured the MP that management of the school would ensure proper maintenance of the facility to prolong its life span.

Mr Aaron Joe-Asare, Assembly Member for Tarkwa Na- Aboso Low-Cost electoral area, on his part, expressed appreciation to the MP and pledged to team up with the community to preserve the facility.
