Berekum College… stalled GETFund projects hindering academic work

All GETFund projects at the Berekum College of Education in the Brong Ahafo Region have stalled putting pressure on existing facilities.


Berekum College of Education is one of the three Colleges of Education in the Brong Ahafo Region.


The school, established decade ago, has not seen any major expansion over the years, and GETFund projects started eight years ago have stalled.


A staff accommodation project, which started eight years ago, is yet to be completed with a female hostel still at the foundation level.


The Principal of the Berekum College of Education, Prince Yeboah Marfo, in an interview with Citi News said the situation was affecting academic work.


“All our GETFund projects in the school have stalled. A staff accommodation, which started in 2010, is still not completed. A female hostel started in 2013 is also at the foundation stage. The tarring of the road which is also under GETFund has stopped,” Mr Marfo noted.


The school is also struggling with inadequate non-teaching staff.


“Presently, we have no problem with the teaching staff but we need more non-teaching staff because we need people in the offices, we need labourers, security personnel and others,” Mr Marfo disclosed.
