Adamu JHS is one of the few schools in the Tain constituency in the Bono region to have it’s past students becoming Members of Parliament.
But these two, (2) former MP’s of Tain constituency have failed to put up any proper school buildings or structures for their former JHS called Adamu D/A JHS in their term of office as Members of Parliament for the area.
Adamu D/A JHS is one of productive school in the Tain Constituency of the Bono region. It’s the first school in that community (Adamu) of the Tain area to produce two consecutive MPs for the constituency, thus; Hon. Akwasi Agyemang Gyan-Tutu & Hon. Gabriel Osei.
Information available indicate that It was only Gabriel Osei who awarded contract to a contractor in 2019 to build some structures but sadly, the project has been abandoned.
According to Hon. Kwabena Kumah, Assemblyman for Adamu Electoral Area, himself with some opinion leaders in the town and the school administration went to the district assembly to ascertain the reasons why the contractor is not on site. The district assembly directed them to go to the former MP, Hon. Gabriel Osei because the contract wasn’t awarded through the assembly but rather the MP himself .
Thereafter, they visited the former MP and he also directed them to the contractor. Upon reaching the contractor, he said he is not financially sound and that it is not the only contract he is working on at the moment, so till he gets financial support from the government he will not be able to attend to the job”.
The Headmaster of the school, Mr. Mark Amankwaa said the poor nature of the structure hinders teaching and learning.
“It’s true, the school building is a big factor that doesn’t allow the smooth teaching and learning at the school because when it’s raining they need to close from school because building it is difficult for students to concentrate since the building have no doors and also school is just by the road side, so it disturbs them a lot and due to this structures, teachers also don’t like staying at school for longer periods. Whenever they’re posted to the school, they seek for transfer after a year or two to move away.
Community members are calling on government of Ghana to help construct structures for the school for effective teaching and learning.
