Construction of a five-storey classroom block at KNUST Senior High School in Kumasi has stalled while authorities grapple with congestion.
Officials say contractor of the project which began seven years ago cannot be traced.
It was being funded by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and government of Ghana at an undisclosed amount.
Only 16 of that 40-unit classroom block can be put to use by school authorities. The project also includes six science laboratories as well as six others for audio visual, home economics, computer laboratories.
Assistant Headmaster, Daniel Boamah Duku, says the delayed project which started seven years ago expose students to congestion.
He is asking for swift government intervention to address the challenges.
Mr. Boamah Duku tells Nhyira news additional ten computers to the old ones will worsen the congestion situation.
“The school is procuring more computers, and these computers donated by 1991 year group will create congestion because of space, one of the classrooms has been converted into computer lab, and the main computer lab is in the classroom complex that has been abandoned by the contractor.
It is supposed to contain forty classrooms, six science laboratories, two computer labs and audiovisual rooms and facilities for the vocational class.
We hope that the class room complex will be rekindled so that there will be a 1 to1 student computer ratio.”
Chairman of the donor group, Rev Isaac Opoku Agyemang, is optimistic the computers will help students reach their full potentials in this new era of technology.
