Residents Want Headmistress Of Nungua SHS Dismissed Over Alleged Mismanagement

Residents of Nungua are calling for the dismissal of the Headmistress of the Nungua Senior High School (SHS), Mrs Cecelia Asabea Obeng for the reckless manner she has managed the school.

According to them, her predecessor was doing far better. The residents say under the former headmistress, the school never came close to being closed down especially due to insanitary conditions.

Meanwhile, the school has been provided with 4 mobile toilet facilities as an interim measure for the lack of toilet facilities which led to a court order for the closure of the school.

Sources close to the school revealed to GBC’s Radio Ghana that the Municipal Assembly had to step in to provide the interim solution to prevent the court action.

Had it not been the swift intervention by the Ledzekuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly, the Nungua Senior High school would have been closed down today per the court order.

The school was to be closed down if no remedy was evident latest today (November 24). Sources within the school told Radio Ghana off record that the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area has begun works on 27 toilet cubicles in a new classroom unit under construction in the school, as part of the remedies to the issue.

Radio Ghana arrived at the school just as break was over, students and school officials were seen performing their normal activities paying no attention to the stench emanating from the toilets. Students and officials declined to speak to Radio Ghana on the issue.

GBC's Radio Ghana therefore sought the views of residents who live close to the school. Most of them were of the view that the school should be closed down for as long as it will take to resolve the issue permanently.

Pressure will definitely be on the 4 mobile toilets serving the whole school currently. Will the school receive more mobile toilets? And even if it does, what are the steps taken by the school to permanently resolve the issue?

Efforts by GBC’s Radio Ghana to get answers to these questions proved futile as officals are tight lipped on the matter.
