SERIOUS: JSS Student’s Throat Cut With Razor By Senior Colleague For Refusing His Errand

Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of the Ridge Experimental Cluster of Schools in Sunyani the Bono Regional capital has threatened to hit the principal streets of Sunyani with their wards in a protest against the selling of school land to a private developer to build hostels.

According to the parents, they are prepared to face any private developer who step on the school land to erect or build anything.

In a peaceful protest at the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) to express their dispressure on the situation, the parents alleged that about two years ago there was an attempt to move the school to a different place with the aim of giving the land to a private developer for development but they resisted that attempt and in the process agreed by PTA to fence the school by constructing a wall.

They continued that when they started erecting the wall they were asked to stop by some political figures in the region.

They added that just yesterday they had letters inviting them to an emergency meeting today Thursday, March 10, 2022 and at the meeting, they were told a portion of the school land has been sold to one Rashid Kolanbig who is believed to be Bono Regional Coordinator for the National Desaster Management Organization (NADMO) to build hostels.

To the parents who gathered at the RCC believe the move is an attempt by our political figures to gradually move the school from its current location and for that matter will not allow such thing to happen.

Ridge Experimental Cluster of Schools A-D with each having Creche, Nursery and KG was built in 1960 and currently has over 2,000 student population.

Speaking to CFANwes’s Collins Fosu-Appiah, PTA Chairman Elder CK Gyamfi revealed that initially the school has about 258.99 hectors of land but has lost part due to encroachment.

According to Mr Gyamfi, the said portion if allow to develop by the private developer, the C and D classroom blocks would have to be demolished to pave way for the said project and will not sit and watch such an act to happen knowing how important education is to the development of the nation.

Mr. Gyamfi appealed to President Nana Akufo-Addo to intervene and stop the developer else they will take the laws into their own hands and stop him from building on the school land.

Meanwhile, Bono Regional Minister, Justina Owusu Banahene addressing the aggrieved parents noted she will consult the various stakeholders and ensure that the land is protected.
