The family of late Lionel Mahama, a former headmaster of the Ghana Senior High School (Ghanasco) in Tamale, who won a court case against the school and Education service for wrongful demotion and freeze of salary, is ready to auction the confiscated assets of the school after failure by authorities, including government to pay a judgment debt awarded by the court.

Diana Awuni, daughter of the late headmaster told Starr News the family had finally secured a clearance document from the court and that a Kumasi-based auctioneer would arrive in Tamale in a fortnight to begin the process to liquidate the vehicles. The only bus of the school, an official Pick up vehicle, and two Nissan patrol cars belonging to the education service have been left rotting in the courtyard for two years now since its confiscation in 2016, after the school failed to pay up salary arrears of the late tutor.

Authorities at the Wa Senior High Technical School in the Upper West region are currently in an emergency meeting to discuss the future of the school, after reports of mysterious deaths of students.

Two students were said to have died in what some of the students attribute to occultism. Overwhelmed by the situation, the students are asking authorities to close the school temporarily in order for investigations to go on.

The Nadowli-Kaleo District Assembly has donated 50 sets of school uniforms and ten laptops to the first batch of students enrolled at the Girls Model Junior High School in the Upper West Region.

Presenting the items to the school on behalf of the Assembly, Katherine T. Lankono, the Nadowli-Kaleo District Chief Executive stressed on the need to educate the girl child.

Quoting the popular saying “If we educate a boy, we educate one person. If we educate a girl, we educate a family – and a whole nation,” the DCE explained that “By sending a girl to school, she is far more likely to ensure that her children also receive an education. As many claim, investing in a girl’s education is investing in a nation’’.

She said, child marriage in some cases involving girls as young as 6 or 8 mostly results in the end of a girls’ schooling.

According to her, “The result is literate young mothers without adequate tools to build healthy, educated families. On average, for every year a girl stays in school past fifth grade, her marriage is delayed a year. Educated girls typically marry later, when they are better able to bear and care for their children.”
