The United State of America (USA) branch of Akunini, the Old Students’ Association of Kumasi Academy (KUMACA) has built and handed over a 12-seater ultra-modern lavatory facility for their Alma Mater. The new facility, which will cater for both boys and girls, has ceramic hand wash basins.
At a handing over ceremony in Kumasi recently, Mr. Kwame Boadu, the Communication Director of KUMACA-USA, noted that the project was initiated and completed to solve sanitation challenges facing the school and tasked the students to take good care of it.
The national president of Akunini, Dr. Kwabena Osiakwan Dapaah, said the school has never in its 64 years of existence benefited from such a huge project and commended Akunini, USA for the gesture.
He thanked Dr.Kwame Bawauh Edusei, class of 1974, an entrepreneur, medical officer, business man and a diplomat for his major contribution for the completion of the project.
Mr. Samuel Gato, the headmaster of the school, on his part, said the project is a curtain raiser for a massive science laboratory which would be commissioned soon.
According to him, the lavatory would surely help to reduce the excuse normally given by students to go back to the dormitory to attend to nature’s call, whilst classes are ongoing.
On behalf of the board of governors, school management, staff and students, he thanked the old students, especially the USA branch of Akunini, for providing the facility.
Some of the Akunini members who were in attendance at the function were; Mr. Kwame Boafo, Daniel Nimo, Osei Kufour and CharlesKraBoadu.
