- The Bremen Jamra DCE says the Assembly is yet to finish a six-unit classroom building
- He says government is yet to allocate to his Assembly its Common Fund
- The renovation comes after a classroom collapsed, killing six very young pupils of the school
The District Chief Executive of Bremen Jamra, Mr. Isaac Odoom, has stated that his Assembly is still waiting for funds in order to complete the kindergarten building that collapsed last year, killing several children.
Mr. Isaac Odoom told Joy News that his Assembly is yet to receive its Common Fund from the central Government, which will allow it to successfully finish the school building that collapsed on January 30th, 2017, killing 6 school pupils.
According to a report undertaken by Joy News' Justice Baidoo, one year after a kindergarten building in Bremen Jamra tragically collapsed and killed six pupils, government is yet to finish the six-unit classroom block.
Days after the incident occurred last year, the Education Minister, Mr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, along with other members of the Ghana Education Service (GES) visited the site of the incident and promised that new classrooms would be built for the school so the incident does not happen again.
At the time, the DCE promised to have pupils relocated from the old building to a newly built one, one that is still yet to finished according to the report.
Recently speaking about the incident, Mr. Isaac Odoom dismissed claims that an NGO had already paid for the school's construction.
"The total cost of the project is ¢162,000 and the NGO initially paid half of it. They promised to pay an additional ¢20,000 which is yet to be paid," he said.
