Otumfuo’s Taasehene, Nana Kwaku Duah Agyeman (I) is worried that residents within the Asaago Community in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region are debasing schools in the community.
He laments that pupils can no longer keep cleaning the feces of some residents who have made schools there their place of convenience.
Nana Kwaku Duah Agyeman (I) in an exclusive interview with Ultimate FM monitored by Ashantibiz, said the habit where unscrupulous persons easily get access to schools and comfortably attend to nature’s call must stop, calling on indigenes to rise up for the menace to be done away with.
“I love schooling, it’s unfortunate that I had my schooling truncated in 1986 I would have gone far with it. I don’t understand why people will take delight in easing themselves into a school facility. Schools in Asaago and its environs are dealing with this. Some people have made schools there their toilets”
“Enough is enough, the pupils cannot always come to school and come and be sweeping the fecal matter of adults always. Every morning if you go to some of the schools you will see the school children sweeping toilets in their classrooms, this is not right, this is not healthy. People must desist from this, it’s unhealthy”, he cautioned
Nana Kwaku Duah Agyeman (I) has spearheaded some projects in the community, such as the renovation of a 3-unit classroom block at Asaago, the motivation of teachers at Apatrapa , Boko and Asaago government schools.
He also supports preparation for BECE students in the community as well as helping in reshaping interlinking community roads.
Currently, he is raising resources to roof a six-unit classroom block in the community that has been abandoned by the government for a while now.
“We have school challenges in my community and I have made provision for this Asaago School. I really want to help the pupils there. Anytime it rains, the school has to close because of poor infrastructure. I am in to correct that. I have provided roofing sheets and the needed wood for the roofing. I will plaster the building too. Any indigene and institutions that wish to support is welcomed” he said
