Ashaiman Education Directorate vows to complete the E-Block project started under the previous government.
In an earlier story, YEN.com.gh wrote about how the Ashaiman Municipal Directorate has vowed to finish the four-storey classroom block projects that the Mahama-led administration started. The vow was made in response to a petition from students at Ashaiman Technical and Vocational Institute (Ash Tech), who lamented the dilapidated state of their classroom blocks.
