126 Schools Have Collapsed Due To Covid-19 – GNACOPS

Published

on


The Ghana National Association of Private Schools (GNACOPS) has disclosed that about a 126 schools have stopped functioning ever since schools were closed down due to the rising cases of Covid-19 in the country.

According to the Executive Secretary of GNACOPS, Enoch Kwasi Gyetuah, sixteen of the affected schools are in the Greater Accra Region, 13 in Northern, 11 in the Ashanti Region and 10 each in the Eastern, Upper West and Bono East regions.

He explained that “they were teaching on loan facilities and some of the banks have decided to take over as a result of their indebtedness to them. They are using the school facilities to pay off the debt.” 

Due to the pandemic schools were unable to raise monies to sustain teachers and other staff not to talk of servicing their loans.

In his assessment, there is the need for government to intervene in order to stop the collapse of more schools before the January 15, reopening date. He has therefore called for a consultation engagement between government and the council to address the situation.

“There should be immediate consultations with the private schools so that we can find out a better position to situate this since it has adverse effect on government’s infrastructure.”

Villagers, I’ll Sack All Of You And Close Down The Radio Station – Kennedy Agyapong Descends On Ash FM Workers

Published

on


Assin Central Lawmaker, Kennedy Agyapong has once again lashed out at his employees, albeit, this time Ash FM.

Speaking on the Attitude Show, the controversial legislator accused his employers of lacking civility and manners and further described them as criminals who steal from his business.

“Let’s come home, Ash FM got me very sad this weekend. The next time I go to Kumasi I will close the radio station; I will sack everyone. It is filled with typical villagers. Let me tell you why I say they are villagers who are disgracing Ashanti’s. I am travelling and as soon as I get back, I will close the station. We were listening to the news on our way to Takoradi, we had tuned in to Ash FM and they were reporting on someone who had been robbed. They spent the time between 6 to 6:30 running a commentary about how the person was attacked and beaten up,” he was quoted by ghanaweb.

“As soon as he finished another guy came to continue with sports and the pace with which he was speaking, it was as though he was running a live commentary. I called Kenneth to find out what was going on because I don’t have their numbers. I allow them to work; everybody to work. But they are thieves, criminals. About 80% of journalists in Ghana are thieves. The guy was giving sports news and he was shouting throughout, I inquired why he was doing that and the answer I was given is that ‘this is how we do it in Kumasi.’ But it is not true,” he fumed.

“These are the same people who will tell Akufo-Addo to fix the country, have you fixed your bad character? Have you fixed your horrible attitude?” he quizzed.

Our Own People Keep Lying To Akufo-Addo And Ghanaians Aren’t Happy – NPP Man Laments

Published

on


A communications team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwesi Botchwey has bemoaned how President Akufo-Addo has transformed from being firm and strong to a more relaxed person who watches on while recklessness abounds in his government.

Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he bemoaned how the President who was known to be a no-nonsense persona, has suddenly become more relaxed; urging him to be up and doing.

He noted that appointees of the President continue to lie to him making everything look good in his eyes meanwhile Ghanaians aren’t happy.

According to Mr Botchwey, the ongoing #fixthecountry campaign should be taken seriously by the government.

To him, it doesn’t mean the government has failed to perform, rather, it means Ghanaians want more to be done.

“Ghanaians trust in Nana Addo and just like in 1995 he led the ‘Kumepreko’ crusade, Ghanaians want him to do same now. That energy he used is no longer there. It seems the President has relaxed. His action has reduced. He must crack the whip so Ghanaians would know that he is serious. All those who are leading galamsey especially, your appointees, must be punished, so it serves as a deterrent. Galamsey is now a pandemic, and Nana Addo should deal with those who are leading the galamsey,” he was reported by rainbowradioonline.

He continued: “What Ghanaians are demanding is accountability. Those you have employed are lying to you and you must punish them. That is what Ghanaians are saying,” he added.
