The Senior Presidential Advisor, Yaw Osafo-Maafo, has commissioned three developmental educational and sanitation projects at Akyem Oda in the Birim Central Municipality of the Eastern Region.

The developmental projects include Akim Oda St. Luke RC Primary Information Communication Technology (ICT) laboratory, a 6-Unit classroom block at Presby A & C Primary School, and a 10-seater water closet toilet facility, all in the municipality.

The projects are expected to help students improve on their academics, acquire higher skills that lead to improved learning outcomes and create a favourable learning environment to impact pupils’ performance in the Birim Central Municipality.

The construction of the -unit classroom Block at Presby A & C Primary School follows a heavy rainstorm which rendered hundreds of residents of Akyem Oda township and its environs homeless and also affected many schools in the municipality.

The Akim Oda St. Luke RC Primary I.C.T Laboratory, 6 Unit classroom Block at Presby A & C Primary School and 10 Seater WC Toilet was named in honor of the Presidential Advisor, Osafo-Maafo.

It is expected to equip students with IT skills and improve their learning while also providing then with a clean place of convenience for their water, sanitation and hygiene needs.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Akyem Oda Constituency, Alexander Akwasi Acquah, at the ceremony, disclosed that the project was named in honor of Mr Osafo-Maafo because of the significant role he played by securing sponsorship for the projects.

Mr. Alexander Akwasi Acquah stated that the three projects were financed by Cooperate Ghana and stakeholders.

Speaking at the program, Mr. Osafo-Maafo expressed gratitude for the honour and called on philanthropists and stakeholders to support deprived communities in the country with developmental projects.

He urged the school’s authorities to ensure the facilities are put under proper maintenance in order for it to be sustainable.
