Residents of Janguasi appeal to gov't to renovate school
Residents of Janguasi in the Nadowli-Kaleo District have appealed to the government and other stakeholders to the support them to undertake repair works or renovate the basic school in the community.
They said the school is presently in a deplorable state and does not encourage effective teaching and learning.
Mr Augustine Sulley, a resident of the community, lamented that the windows and doors of the classrooms have fallen off leaving the rooms unsecured and at the mercy of animals and other transgressions.
He said they have been contributing to maintain the school but now the level of work has gone beyond their meager contributions.
Mr Patrick Mosogu Bataanye, another resident of the community, said that the walls of the school are peeling off and worried that it could collapse on their children as it is dilapidated and not user-friendly.
He observed that the contractor who built the school had not done a very good job which is why the school is fast deteriorated.
Responding to allegations and claims that the community members showed lackadaisical attitude towards the project, Mr Bataanye admitted that the community at that time was not enlightened as today.
He however maintained that the contractor had not done a good job even though the community had not also ensured that.
He said that they have taken a cue from what happened in supervising subsequent projects being undertaken in the community.
