Dr. Emmanuel Abeere-Inga, the Director of Infrastructure, land and environment and natural resources at the National Development Authority (NDA), explained that the completed ultra-modern Kindergarten block which was built by D.A Ayamga Construction firm at Zuarungu Moshie cost 287,000 Ghana cedis while the three units JHS block at Dubila commucity was also built by Apasiyuure construction firm for 450,001 Ghana cedis.
Mr. Thomas Adiyure Azuliya, a deputy director at the Bolgatanga East District Ededucation directorate expressed his sincere gratitude to the Northern Development Authority for giving them the two edifices for pupils of Moshie Kindergarten pupils and students of Dubila JHS for effective academic work.
He however pleaded with the Northern Development Authority to execute similar projects that have been stalled in the district for affecting academic works. He told word news that children of Kantia JHS have been sitting under trees because the NDA JHS block project has been abandoned as well as the Dulugu Kindergarten block.
“We want to appeal the to assembly through the Northern Development Authority that there are others projects that has been started by the NDA, in fact it was started by the same NDA , in fact, they started at the same time as these same projects, but some of them are still at the foundation level, that is bringing about a lot of frustration to us because if you go to a place like Kantia, the students at the JHS level are still learning under trees, they attempted taking the Kindergarten block, they have to also fight back, so virtually they don’t have any place to learn, if you go to Dulugu kindergarten it is a similar situation”.
Mr. Lawal Alhassan the district director of health services also expressed joy over the new edifice, adding that the facility is not only going to be used as a maternity block only because they are thinking of adding a laboratory office and other important areas into the facility to facilitate effective health delivery because the facility is located at a strategic area which borders the Bongo and the Nabdam district.
