The Museums and Monument Board (MMB) building in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, needs immediate renovation to avert its collapse.
Mr. Ayi Amu, Regional Director of MMB, who made the appeal in an interview with Ghana News Agency in Bolgatanga, said the building, which was put up in 1993, had not been rehabilitated resulting in cracks on the walls and sagging ceiling.
These, he said, was creating fear among the staff, children and tourists, adding “The offices leak anytime it rains and the roof shakes when the wind is strong. Also the ventilation is poor.”
The Regional Director said the building lacked storage facilities for cultural objects and means of transport to facilitate the movement of workers.
He also said the office was under staffed and appealed to government and non-governmental organisations to come to the aid of the MMB.
