The Municipal Chief Executive of Yilo Krobo, in the Eastern Region, Ebenezer Kupualor has broken the ground for the construction of a six-unit classroom block for the pupils of Ogome Anglican Basic School here.

The Gh¢400,000.00 government project with funding from the European Union consists of an auxiliary office accommodation for a head teacher, a staff common room for teachers and a school library.

The project when completed would help eliminate schools under trees as well as save students from the stress they have to go through in their quest to access education.

Mr. Kupualor stated that education was a vital ingredient for the development of every society, adding that, even though Ghana was endowed with natural resources, it continued to wallow under the shackles of poverty.

He said, there was the urgent need for huge investment in the human resource base of the country, as that was the only option to reverse the country’s underdeveloped status.

Mr. Kupualor urged the contractor to work in collaboration with the chiefs and opinion leaders in the area to ensure a speedy work on the project in other to meet the stipulated deadline.

The MCE also pleaded with the community members to provide any assistance the contractor may need to enable him give out the quality of work for the benefit of the community.

He required community members to provide security assistance to enable the smooth running of the project.

The headmistress of the Ogome Anglican Basic Schools, Ms. Eugenia Dei commended the government for the structure, adding that the facility would enhance effective teaching and learning in the school when completed.

She pleaded with the MCE to relocate the community refuse container which was positioned close to the school which posed health hazard.
