This particular E-block project made news headlines after the paramount chief of the area, Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti V, gave the government a four-month ultimatum to operationalize the facility.

He was unhappy that several young people in the area were denied access to education as the project was left unattended.

“Look at the structure standing over there, it’s 90% complete. In the era of the NPP, we have free Senior High School education and my people are not benefiting because the school is not ready. By next year February, new entrants will go to school. Carry this message to the Minister of Education that come February, I want this school to be opened,” he told the Minority side of the Education Committee who were touring uncompleted school buildings in the Ketu South constituency.

Reacting to this, President Akufo-Addo, amidst laughter, quizzed, “is he the one going to give the Minister of Education ultimatum?”

After the statement, President Akufo-Addo assured the traditional leader that his government is resolved to continue projects started during the tenure of John Mahama. Akufo-Addo stressed that plans are being executed to complete the projects and put them to good use.
