Mr. Victor Smith, the Eastern Regional Minister, has cut the sod for the construction of an eighteen unit classroom block at the cost of GH¢863,000 for the Klo-Agogo Senior High School in the Yilo Krobo District.

The classroom block which is funded by the GETFund would be completed by the end of the year.

Mr. Smith also broke the ground for the construction of a six unit two storey classroom block for the Somanya Basic Schools complex.

The GH¢367,959.68 project which is being funded by the GETFund is expected to be completed in eight months.

The minister, who was on a familiarization tour of the District, said the projects formed part of the developmental agenda of the government and part of the “better Ghana agenda” program of government.

He urged teachers to help government train the young ones so that they do not become liability to society, and advised pupils and students to stay in school to get the appropriate skills and knowledge so that they can also contribute their quota to the development of the country.

The Regional Minister earlier inspected the completed twelve units two storey classroom blocks for the Somanya Presbyterian Basic Schools Complex and the completed Nkurankan D.A Junior High School complex.

Mr. Smith also inspected the on-going Klo-Agogo Hospital expansion project, the reconstruction of the Nkurankan market project, the on-going construction of Klo-Agogo to Oluahai feeder road, and broke the grounds for the development of the new Klo-Agogo market.**
