Jomoro MP renovates Mpasem classroom block

The Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, has renovated the Mpasem Roman Catholic School, the only Basic school in the community.

The hitherto dilapidated school was abandoned and the pupils were compelled to learn under a shed. This affected quality teaching and learning anytime it rains.

For now, the pupils and teachers of the school have heaved a big sigh of relief following the intervention by the Jomoro Legislator.

Following the renovation of the four classroom block by the Legislator, the Chief of Mpasem, Nana Ezenebenie, was full of joy and indicated that the traditional leaders are appreciative of the efforts of the MP in the community.

The Chief, who spoke in Nzema, told the Legislator that “My people know you due to what you have done for the community and Jomoro in general. Ever since the school building collapsed, we have told several government officials to help with its construction, but to no avail until you [Hon Dorcas Affo-Toffey] came in to re-construct the school for us”.

Nana Ezenebenie continued, “You will continue to be the MP for Jomoro until you decide otherwise”.

The chief asked the Legislator to continue to make human and infrastructural development the center of her commitment to developing the constituency.

“Continue doing the good things and ensure you spread these good projects across the entire Jomoro Constituency, so that other communities will also benefit”, he added.

The chief assured that, “We shall write your name on this school to tell generations what you have done for our community”.

The Jomoro District Education Director, Edith Mary Hagan, said construction of school buildings is not the duty or the job of any MP, but Dorcas Affo-Toffey has gone out of her way torenovate the Mpasem Roman Catholic School.

She said this was not the only thing the MP had done to support education in the District and that she had also provided water, desks and computers to schools and scholarships to students, among others.

Madam Hagan said with the renovation of the school, it has reduced the burden on her as the Education Director in the District and urged the teachers to provide quality education to the pupils.

The Director called on teachers to be punctual and ensure they maintain the school to serve the purpose for which it was renovated.

The Roman Catholic Parish Priest for the Jomoro District, Rev. Father Jerome Toku Appiah, said education is the word of God and the word of God is also education and that for the MP to put up such a structure indicates she is doing the work of God.

It is on record that in 2019, a heavy rainstorm razed the school to the ground rendering it useless for students. All efforts to renovate the school building proved futile, until Legislator Toffey intervened to renovate the school.
