The Member of Parliament for Nadowli/Kaleo Constituency in the Upper West Region, Hon Anthony Mwinkaara  Sumah, has expressed dissatisfaction about the abandoned construction work of the Community Senior High School (E-Block) at Naro community in the Constituency.

 According to him,  works on the  E-Block project in the Naro Community had stalled since the change of government in 2017, thereby affecting access to education in the area.

Hon Sumah expressed disappointment when he dragged the Minister for education to parliament on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, over the abandoned Community Senior High School project at Naro community.

The Nadowli/Kaleo lawmaker wanted to know when construction works on the project would be resumed and complete.

“Mr. Speaker, I rise to ask the Minister for Education  the status of construction of the Community Senior High School (E-Block) at Naro in the Nadowli/Kaleo District of the Upper East Region, and what plans the Ministry has to complete it?,” Hon Sumah  

In response, the Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum said the E-Block project at Naro in the Nadowli/KaleoDistrict is part of the 27 number of E-Blocks that the government terminated due to non-performance on the part of the Contractor.

According to him, the project completion status was only 8% at the time of termination but assured the Ministry is working to re-award the contract for work to resume.

The MP in a follow-up asked for specific timelines on the process of rewarding which the minister could not give a definite answer.

The Minister explained that since the project was awarded by GetFund he would have to contact the GETFund to finish him with better particulars on the project.

But Hon  Sumah said he was dissatisfied with the Minister’s response on the ground that the delay in completing the projects for over six years is affecting senior high school education in the area.

He noted that there was thus the need for the government to expedite action and re-award the project for construction to resume and complete the project to promote education in the area.
