Abomosu STEM SHS is part of Nana Addo’s State of the Art V Blocks not Mahama-MoE PRO

With the National Democratic Congress (NDC) National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi assertion that the Abomosu Stem SHS was founded by the former president John Mahama is not true according to the Deputy Spokesperson for Ministry of Education(MoE) Yaw Opoku Mensah.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, during TV3’s weekend program “The Key Points,” he blatantly stated these claims.

The NDC’s chief linguist embellished lies to mislead Ghana’s good people in an effort to excuse the inept leadership that existed during their rule.

He claimed that between 2012 and 2016, former President Mahama cut sod for the construction of Abomosu STEM SHS in the Atiwa West District of the Eastern Region as part of their infrastructure development. This is not just an undercurrent; it also shows an egregious lack of respect for the residents of Abomosu and the rest of the nation.

But in sharp rebuttal, Mr Opoku Mensah says the Abomosu STEM Senior High School  was started by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and the NPP government in 2019 and is near completion to be operationalized in January 2023.

 

In a statement copied to Ghanatodayonline.com, Mr Opoku Mensah  said the GETFUND program started on 15th October 2019 by the president of republic is part of the government of the government flagship program dubbed STEM.

 

“The site for the Abomosu STEM SHS project which is funded by the GETFund was handed over to the government on 15th October 2019 with its commencement two weeks after that. It comprises an Administration block, two(2) Science Blocks consisting of thirty-two (32) classrooms and twelve (12) Laboratory which will cater for physics, chemistry, biology and a general laboratory for three (3) streams of students, a two (2) Dormitory Block, a 3-Storey Dormitory Block, a Library Block, Staff Flats, an Assembly Hall which can take over 2000 students, a Dining Hall Block with Kitchen, Principal’s Residence and two (2) Vice Principals’ Residence” he stated in the statement.

NDC SHOULD FOCUS ON THEIR FEW E-BLOCKS NOT THE STATE-OF-THE-ART V BLOCKS OF THE NPP GOVERNMENT – Yaw Opoku Mensah, Deputy Spokesperson for MoE

The cliche propagandism of the NDC, most especially by their National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, seems to have transcended the human rendition of politicking with his claim that Abomosu Stem SHS was started by former President Mahama. He unabashedly made these assertions during TV3’s weekend show “The Key Points” on Saturday, 1st October 2022.

In the attempt by the chief linguist of the NDC to defend the incompetent governance during their tenure, he tendered to the embellishment of lies to deceive the good people of Ghana. He asserted that as part of their infrastructural development, former President Mahama between 2012 to 2016 cut sod for the construction of Abomosu STEM SHS in the Atiwa West District of the Eastern Region.” This isn’t just undercurrent but a gross disrespect to the people of Abomosu and the country at large.

Let me put this on record in my capacity as a citizen and the deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Education that, Abomosu STEM Senior High School which was started by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and the NPP government in 2019 and is near completion to be operationalized in January 2023.

The site for the Abomosu STEM SHS project which is funded by the GETFund was handed over to the government on 15th October 2019 with its commencement two weeks after that. It comprises an Administration block, two(2) Science Blocks consisting of thirty-two (32) classrooms and twelve (12) Laboratory which will cater for physics, chemistry, biology and a general laboratory for three (3) streams of students, a two (2) Dormitory Block, a 3-Storey Dormitory Block, a Library Block, Staff Flats, an Assembly Hall which can take over 2000 students, a Dining Hall Block with Kitchen, Principal’s Residence and two (2) Vice Principals’ Residence.

 

This forms part of the commitment of the NPP government through the Ministry of Education to improve STEM Education with the construction of Prototype Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Technical Focused Schools together with Creative Arts Senior High Schools across the length and breadth of this country. To this effect, we have Ten (10) New STEM Senior High Schools with four at the  completion stage and operationalized whiles the remaining six (6) are at various levels of completion.

 

The four STEM Schools with finishes ongoing and been operationalized include Abomosu SHS in the Eastern Region, Bosomtwe Girls SHS in Ashanti Region, Kpasenkpe SHS in North East Region, and Awaso SHS in the Western North Region. The remaining six which are steadily ongoing are Kwadaso Creative Arts SHS in Ashanti Region, John Agyekum Kuffour Senior High and Technical School at Dabaa in the Ashanti Region, Akrodie SHS in the Ahafo Region, Weija SHS in the Greater Accra Region, Koase in the Bono Region and Diaso in the Central Region of Ghana.

 

STEM Education, which holds the key to the government’s transformational agenda has been substantially boosted to close the gap between humanities and sciences. This is evident with the resource materials and infrastructure provided by the government to equip the pupil with the critical skills and knowledge to help the country thrive in the technological advancement of this century.

 

With the above facts and data provided, it is only a propagandist like Sammy Gyamfi who will sit on public television and contemptuously claim that Abomosu STEM SHS project among others which commenced in 2019 by the NPP government was started by the NDC during Mahama’s tenure. It will be prudent for him to measure his temerity of engaging in a such endeavour to defend his party at the expense of becoming a laughing stock in the country.
