Ghanaian residents in the Suhum Municipality in the Eastern region have vowed to boycott the 2020 elections.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The threat came after a classroom that was built over 80 years ago collapsed, compelling authorities to organize classes under trees.
YEN.com.gh has learned that a three-unit GETFUND classroom block for Kindergarten pupils and a teacher’s bungalow project started by the previous government have been abandoned.
The people of the community promised that they will allow no political party to campaign in the area until the projects are completed.
Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, the Okonam M/A Basic School is the only school serving children within and outside the community.
It was established in 1926 through communal labour by the residents as they sought to help provide formal education for their children.
Okonam M/A Junior High School reportedly lacks computers and this makes it challenging to teach Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the school.
In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that a Nigerian student has built the country’s first locally-manufactured drone when he was 17-year-old.
David Opateyibo, together with a team of students from the Lagos State Polytechnic, built the device and authorities are looking forward to deploying it for security surveillance.
Information available shows that the drone forms part of a project being pursued in line with the training curriculum at the polytechnic.
The aim is to develop a form of technology that will compete with the rest of the world, and in the process, empower young people and provide job opportunities.
Tests proved that Opateyibo’s drone is capable of flying 15 minutes in the air at a maximum altitude of 2000 feet.
