The other beneficiaries included Kowie and Kassana, places where their Basic schools face an infrastructure deficit.
During the handing over of contract documents to contractors on site, MCE Hon. Karim Nanyua stated that education is important and has become the president's vision to have every child be in school and therefore the need to build schools.
He urged parents to send their children to school. The contract sum of each of the facility is a hundred and fifty thousand Cedis and will take six months to complete each project starting on 8th August 2018.
