Greater Accra GES Office Turns Death Trap?


By Cecil Mensah

The Greater Accra Regional office of the Ghana Education Service (GES), is gradually turning into a death trap under the watchful eyes of the authorities.

The office, which is located near Kinbu Senior High Secondary School (SHS) opposite the Publics Works Department (PWD) near the Ministries area in Accra is gradually collapsing as the Ministry of Education and the officials of GES look on.

The two storey building, which is believed to be one of the colonial buildings the country we inherited after independence, had it roofing hanging when The Herald’s scouts visited the area last week.

The building which was partly built with blocks and wood is almost hanging, endangering the life of the workers and people around it.
When The Herald scouts visited the area, the workers were busy going about their business with a notice pasted informing the general public
to buy their re-entrance form for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Even though the building is a disaster waiting to strike, the workers are unalarmed about the current situation of the building.

The state of the building is making a case for the lack of maintenance culture affecting the nation, thereby creating a situation for the
loss of valuable properties in the country.

It is, however, not clear whether the authorities are waiting for a disaster to strike before demolishing the dilapidated building.
