LaNMMA MCE Donates Street Lights to Two Second Cycle Schools

The La Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Jennifer Dede Adjabeng has presented twenty (20) street lights each to two Senior High Schools within the Municipality on Wednesday, November 29, 2023.

The beneficiary schools were Presbyterian Senior High and West Africa Senior High Schools adding up to the existing record of schools benefitting from the assembly’s resolve to facelift lighting situation within schools in the municipality.

The gesture was also aimed at helping to improve security on the school compound which appeared to be bleak in recent times.

Making the presentation separately at the two schools, the MCE said the assembly decided in its 2024 budget to allocate streets lights to the two Senior High Schools separately from allocations to various electoral areas.

She said the assembly has deliberately shifted its priorities to the two Senior High Schools in order to allow it to focus on solving pertinent issues confronting them.

At the West African Senior High school, the donation was received by a team of school administrators led by the school’s head teacher Dr. Shine Ofori. The team expressed appreciation for the kind gesture from the assembly.

On the part of the Presbyterian Senior High school, the items were received by the School Head, David Odidja together with his Assistants who expressed the school’s gratitude towards the gesture. The Head Teacher described the intervention as timely but appealed for more streetlights on the basis that school has over two hundred light poles.

Mr Odidja also disclosed that the school does not have enough desks to cater for the increasing student population due to the Free SHS and therefore called on the assembly to intervene as a matter of urgency. He also appealed for waste bins and the completion of the school’s toilet facility which is under construction.

Responding to the request, Hon. Adjabeng promised to immediately provide waste bins to engender proper sanitary conditions on campus. She also promised to do her best to ensure the completion of the toilet facility for hand over.

Mrs. Adjabeng added that the assembly was considering procuring student beds as well as some desks to be distributed among the two Senior High Schools. According to her, the assembly would continue to provide street lights to all schools till such a time that school compounds become largely illuminated.
