As a Member of Parliament who has the welfare of its constituents at heart, Adwoa Safo, MP for Dome-Kwabenya is appealing to the Ministry of Education and Government to establish a Senior High School (SHS) in her constituency.

According to her, students within her constituency in their quest to access such facilities travel to other communities far and near whilst those who could not afford the high cost of financing the daily routine to and from school as well as fees are deprived of secondary education.

A situation the Dome-Kwabenya MP said does not auger well for the constituency which happens to be one of the most popular towns in Ghana.

“Dome-Kwabenya is a very large constituency and as we speak now there is no such secondary school in the constituency. We are told by the Ministry of Education that there is a project that is in line, where government has in line establishing a secondary in my constituency. We are therefore pleading that this project is very welcoming,” She added.

Although Hon. Safo revealed that her constituency could boast of three tertiary institutions, the least said about secondary education the better.

Hon. Safo made the appeal whilst contributing to a statement on the Floor of Parliament today by the MP for Agortime-Ziope, Hon. Juliana Azumah Mensah when she was congratulating the Olla Girls Senior High school for emerging 60 years.

The Presbyterian Senior High school and West African Senior Secondary School were formally under the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency but in recent times can be located in other constituencies due to further demarcation of districts and municipalities.
