Mahama completed only 29 E-Block schools – Education Minister
The Mahama administration completed only 29 of its flagship E block community day schools before exiting office, the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has stated.
This assertion is contrary to figures given by the previous administration which put the figure above 50 out of the 200 projects.
Dr. Prempeh made the disclosure on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday while answering questions from Garu Mp Albert Akuka Alalzuuga who sought to find out from the minister measures in place to ensure the completion of the community day SHSs.
The Minister further revealed 21 more of such projects have been completed since the Akufo Addo administration took office.
He assured the ministry is working around the clock to complete some more schools while canceling some contracts to be re-awarded on needs basis
The NDC government had on a number of occasions announced that more than 123 of the schools were at various stages of completion and released a list of the said schools in October 2016 following clamours for evidence of progress on the schools.
Former President Mahama in the NDC Manifesto for Election 2012 promised to build 200 of the day schools between 2013 and 2016 with the intention to build at least 50 each year within the four year period.
But with a few months to Election 2016, the NDC admitted it was not going to be able to achieve that feat. Mr Mahama, however, inaugurated a few of them for use with the announcement that 75 were ready for use.
Below is the list the NDC government released in October 2016:
