Wee smokers cause nuisance at Suame Maakro School

The six-unit classroom block The six-unit classroom block

Some smokers of Marijuana, also known as Wee, are disrupting academic work at the Suame Maakro Cluster of Schools in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.

The unscrupulous people usually smoke ‘Wee’ on the school’s compound and the smoke usually affects the children in the classrooms.

Headmistress of the school, Mary Akowuah said the smoke might create some health challenges for the students and the teachers in the school.

She made the disclosure when the Minority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu commissioned a six-unit classroom block in the school on Monday.

Madam Akowuah complained that some drivers also usually drive through the school compound during classes which pose great danger to the students.

She therefore appealed to the Minority Leader and other relevant authorities to fence the school immediately to prevent the ‘Wee’ smokers and drivers from creating problems for teachers and the students.

Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu stated that he executed the classroom project through his share of the Common Fund, adding that he has passion to develop education in his constituency.

He admonished students of the school to take their lessons seriously and shun all social vices in order to become influential people in future, adding that education is the best legacy that parents could bequeath to the youth.

Hon. Mensah Bonsu stated that he had commissioned about 30 classroom projects during his tenure as MP and that more of such projects would be executed in future.

Kwabena Frimpong Asiamah, Assemblyman for Maakro, charged Ghanaians to vote massively for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to improve their lives.
