The Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly in the Upper East Region has provided toilet facilities worth 44,000 Ghana Cedis to five basic schools in the Municipality under the Community Based Rural Development Programme (CBRDP).

The beneficiary schools which are Yarigabisi Primary, Afegra Primary, Zuarungu Primary and Junior High School and Dachio Primary School are expected to improve on their state of hygiene with the package made up of latrines, hand washing sinks and running water.

Inspecting the projects with the Municipal Engineer and officials from the Ghana Education Service, the Bolgatanga Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Epsona Ayamga, noted that Government was committed to development of education and said the beneficiary schools had to be provided with the toilet facilities ease the stress associated with nature’s call.

He indicated that the Assembly acquired furniture which would be distributed to less endowed schools in the Municipality adding, “we
would also ensure that by next year there would no-under-tree-school in the area”.

He stated that plans were underway with the Town and Country Planning to get all school lands in the Municipality properly and legally acquired to avoid the encroachment and litigation.

The DCE decried the situation where political opponents accused the present Government that it was taking credit for projects it executed and stated that the present government’s aim was to make lives comfortable for every Ghanaian.

He said government would complete projects that were left uncompleted by the previous Government but that should not be used to score cheap political points by the opposition.

He entreated the assemblymen in the communities where the projects are sited to take good care of the facilities to ensure that they last long, saying that would help the communities qualify for more projects.

Mr. Akagre Joachim, Deputy Director in-charge of planning, Ghana Education District Directorate, commended the Municipal Assembly for the project and said the pupils in the school used to defecate anywhere at anytime causing health problems.
