Education Minister inspects two projects

.

The Minister for Education, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has inspected two on-going construction of Community Day Senior High Schools at Adugyaman near Mankraso and Agric Nzema near Kwadaso in the Ahafo Ano South District and Kumasi Metropolitan Area.

The two World Bank sponsored projects, with an estimated cost of $11,295,175.30 and $11244,419.26 respectively have common facilities such as 1 No. each 4-storey E-block, Gate House, 4-Storey Block of Staff Flats, Canteen Block School Head’s Bungalow and Associated Extension Works.

At the Adugyaman construction site, the Minister was conducted round the project site by the site engineer of Nickseth Construction Company Limited. The contractor said work started in June 2015 and would be completed and handed over to the Ministry by the end of July.

He disclosed that apart from the long distance of haulage of some building materials to the site, they do not have any challenge, adding that the company’s engagement of the services of more than 500 skilled and unskilled workforce and the provision of a canteen shed on site have made it possible for work to go at a faster pace.

At the Agric Nzema site of the new CDSHS, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang and her entourage were conducted round by the yard foreman, who indicated that more than 40% of work have been completed. He added that all construction materials were on site and there was nothing impeding the progress of work.

He also assured the Minister that, with the about 100 workers on site and working around the clock, they would be able to meet the date line of completion and handing over.

The Minister commended the two contractors for the quality and levels of work so far done and encouraged both to continue at the same pace whist ensuring quality and complete the construction in good time.

The Minister was accompanied by the Deputy Minister in-charge of Pre-Tertiary, Hon. Alex Kyeremeh, the Chief Director of the Ministry, Mr. Enoch Cobbinah, the Director of Pre-Tertiary education, Madam Rabiana Azara, Mr. Michael Inkoom, Director, Secondary Education as well as some senior staff of the Ministry and the Ghana Education Service.
