GHANASCO water problem ; 96 year group supports with 6 polytanks
The 1996 year group of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO), has handed over 6 poly tanks to the authorities of their amal mater.
Each tank has the capacity to store up to 10,000 liters of water.
The tanks worth over 30 thousand Ghana cedis was part of the OGA 96 support to reduce water challenges facing students and management of Ghanasco.
The old students say they are alarmed about what their youngsters were going through on daily bases in search of potable drinking water.
Presenting the tanks to the school on Friday, the OGA 96 group described their support as contributions towards improving water and sanitation situation on campus which will go a long to reduce suffering.
The OGA 96 believes their widow’s mite will aid Ghana’s quest to achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs 3 &6) which focuses on healthy living well-being of everyone.
Hajia Hafsa Sey Sumani who spoke on behalf of OGA 96 was not happy that students of GHANASCO still loiter about in the school community for water and employed other year groups to intervene, especially as the school celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
Assisted Head master in charge of administration, Alhaji Abu Abdallah told the old students that their intervention was God sent one and a relief because the school was spending huge sum of money to get water.
He encouraged other year groups to honor promises they made in previous school occasions.
The 96 year group he said, made attempts for Ghana Water Company GWCL to find lasting solution to the problem but estimated amount for relaying of the pipes was huge and they have to resort to the provision of the tanks.
The pipeline to the school Alhaji Abdallah said do not open regularly by GWCL and all efforts to address it yielded no results.
‘The water issue nearly created unhealthy situation between students and management last term, it was difficult for authorities to convince students to appreciate the difficulty’ , Alhaji Abdallah recounted.
