We have to spend 50% more to complete E-Block projects


Summary short_text

The raging debate on the abandonment of the E-Blocks appears not to be dousing anytime soon, as the ranking Member on Parliament's Education Committee, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe has described as unfair and waste of public resources, the government's inability to complete the several E-block facilities started by the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama administration.

The Akatsi North MP who led the NDC side on the Education Committee to a tour of the facilities which are said to have been abandoned in some schools across the country, expressed discontent at the snail pace at which work was being done while adding that the current costs of cement and other building materials meant that the cost of the projects which were awarded in 2015 have shot up to some 50 percent.

The soft-spoken law-maker wondered why the Nana Akufo-Addo led government has not been able to complete work on the facility despite the $1.5b dollar GetFund facility approved by Parliament in 2018 towards the completion of the E-Blocks.
