Five new school blocks are to be constructed in the Wa East District of the Upper West Region to enhance effective teaching and learning at the rural community level, the Vice-President Alhaji Alui Mahama, has announced. Tenders have been opened to quicken the pace of selection of contractors to build the schools, he added.

The projects, the Vice-President explained, formed part of efforts by the government to eliminate the creation of schools under trees.

“The era where children studied under trees would soon be a thing of the past,” he explained.

Vice President Mahama was addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people of the Wa East District at Funsi here last Friday as part of a three-day working visit to the Upper West Region.

He called on the people to join hands with the government to help develop the area.

On road network, he said, work on the second phase of the 59-kilometre stretch of the Tenga – Bamboi road was on-going, adding, “come next year the people of the region would be linked to the south to enhance their business activities.”

Vice President Mahama said it was the policy of the government to link every district to its regional capital by tarred road.

He urged the people to exercise restraint and keep faith with the government since development was a process.

The Chief of Kundugu, Kuoro Bakuli Bakubie, in a welcome address, expressed the people’s gratitude, and gratitude to the NPP Administration for the great strides it had made in the area of good governance, education, health and decentralisation at the local governance level.

Kuoro Bakubie said the school feeding programme and the capitation grant have made education more relevant and accessible to majority of the people.

“At our level here, teachers quarters have been built to accommodate teachers, to enable them to stay at the communities to do their work.

“This had led to improved enrolment and effective teaching and learning in schools,” Kuoro Bakubie explained.
