Education Director denies knowledge of abandoned ICT centre in South Tongu

Celestine S.A. Korsi Agordo, the South Tongu District’s District Director of Education, has denied any knowledge of a fully functional ICT center that has been abandoned in the district.

According to her, she would have acted on it if the school management had brought it to his attention.

“If the matter had come to my attention or if I had been aware of it, I would have taken action because it is always my goal to ensure that students of South Tongu also get integrated into the global community,” the District Director of Education said.

Students at the Comboni Vocational and Technical Institute have not had access to necessary technical resources for the previous two years.

Even though the center offers computers, it is not accessible to pupils from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. Adom News met off-camera with a number of pupils who expressed their frustration during a visit to the school.

Adom News’ inspections found that some of the equipment, including the lab’s air conditioners, had been pilfered.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Dr. Ken Ashigbey, has urged the Minister of Education, the District Director of Education, and the District Chief Executive to take immediate steps to reopen the abandoned computer laboratory, which has been idle for two years.

“When I informed the district Director of Education, she wasn’t even aware. I am appealing to the relevant authorities to reopen this lab for the students,” he said.
