The Sekondi–Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly, in partnership with the Metropolitan Education Directorate, has unveiled a new 2-unit KG block with ancillary facilities at St. James Anglican Basic School in Akromakrom, nestled within the Essikado–Ketan constituency of the Western Region.

The project, inaugurated by the Metropolitan Chief Executive, Hon Abdul Munin Issah, was born out of impassioned appeals from the local community and the devoted staff of St. James Anglican Basic School. 

Recognizing the pressing need for improved educational infrastructure, the Metropolitan Chief Executive took swift action to address the challenges faced by pupils in terms of classroom space.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Metro Director of Education, Mrs. Sally Nelly Coleman, applauded the proactive approach taken by Hon Abdul Munin Issah.

She highlighted that the head teacher of the school had brought to attention the significant obstacles hindering effective learning.

The swift response and completion of the project within a remarkable 8-month timeframe were a testament to the commitment of the local leadership.

Nana Kwesi Ackon V, the chief of Mampong, Akromakrom, and its environs, expressed his joy and gratitude for the transformative project. He pledged unwavering commitment, along with the entire community, to safeguard the newly constructed facility for generations to come.

Her gratitude mirrored the collective sentiment of the school staff and the entire Akromakrom community.

Mrs. Deborah Adebola, the head teacher of Akromakrom Anglican Basic School, extended heartfelt thanks to Chief Nana Kwesi Ackon V for generously releasing land for the project. h


In a broader effort to uplift educational standards, the Metropolitan Chief Executive also commissioned teachers' quarters at Mbredane Basic School earlier in the day in the same constituency.
