Construction work on Computer Laboratory Project in selected Senior Secondary Schools in the Northern region had come to a halt, school authorities said in Tamale.
The contractors executing the projects, which were either at the foundation or window levels, cannot be traced. The school heads made this known at a meeting with the Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris and some District Chief Executives.
Alhaji Idris organised the forum to solicit district assemblies’ interventions in the provision of infrastructure for Senior Secondary Schools in the area. The school heads said they did not know how the contracts were awarded and urged Alhaji Idris to do his best for work to resume on the projects.
Alhaji Idris said the Regional Coordinating Council had no documents on the Computer Laboratory Project and appealed to the Ministries of Education and Local Government to help find the contractors to complete the project.
He urged the school heads to take advantage of the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) by acquiring land for their schools to undertake food crops production to help feed their students.
