Margret Darko Dankwa, the Municipal Chief Executive for Suhum Assembly in the Eastern Region has figured by using an amount of Ghc 105,157,50 ( 1.6 Billion) to construct 3-unit classrooms at Adarkwa Electoral in the municipality.
The situation as gathered is creating tension in the electoral area with the possibility of it escalating after the assembly members and Chiefs of Adarkwa called for accountability.
The assembly member of Adarkwa electoral area, Hon. Asare Agyei who raised concerns over the amount said has made all efforts to get the MCE to verify why should amount have can be spent on such project proved futile.
He question the rationale behind the reason for constructing a 3-unit classroom without a toilet, no staff common room, and washroom at such an amount of Ghc 105,157,50.
He said these and many inflated costs of projects have brought divisions between some assembly members and the MCE Margret Darko.
He added that the assembly members of Suhum have vowed to ensure the MCE accounts for the money squandered.
Some of the opinions leaders in the area who speak to the media said, when they contacted the Assembly to verify why the school block don’t have a toilet, washroom and the staff common room, they were only told to write a letter on it for the Assembly to consider in its next budget.
They, however, appealed to the authorities and auditors department should come investigation the issue.
Meanwhile, same projects are currently under construction across the municipality which has been awarded by the MCE to the constituency party executives.
