Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Deputy Education Minister, Samuel

Okudzeto Ablakwa has warned

contractors working on the 50

community day Senior High Schools

to sit up or risk their contracts

being abrogated.

He expressed dissatisfaction with

work done so far on the schools,

which were promised by President

Mahama during the 2012 elections.

The Minister issued the warning at

a ceremony to hand over a site for

construction of a Community Day

Senior High School at Adaklu Tsrefe

in the Volta region.

"This is a presidential priority

project so we do not take excuses,

we do not suffer laziness and

excuses about road networks,

workers, water delivery, electricity

supply and all of that.

"We do not accept any excuse, you

have to be on time and you must

be punctual. We are always

monitoring if you do not follow the

laid down schedule of work, we are

going to send you warning letters

then we will terminate the contract

then award it to another

contractor", he said.

The traditional authorities in

Adaklu gave the government 25

acres of land for the construction of

the school.

The facility is expected to include a

four story structure accommodating

24 classrooms, a headmaster's

bungalow, and 11 teachers'

bungalows, among others.

Work on the project is expected to

be completed after 18 months and

is estimated to cost about 11

million cedis.

Meanwhile, stakeholders in the

education sector have been urged

to teach school children to avoid

Chief Executive (DCE) of Sangnaregu

Sorugudoo, believes the
