The compound and classrooms of Roman Catholic Primary and Junior High School located at Jamera in the Jaman North District was turned into a swimming pool after heavy Downpour.
Speaking to the Assembly member for Jamera electoral area, Honorable Philip Fokuo, bemoaned how the students suffer during rainy season hence the need for government to take immediate attention to deal with the unfortunate situation.
The assembly member attributed the cause of the flooding in the school to the shoddy work and uncompleted construction of the Sampa-Jinini Road that passes through the Jamera town.
He stated that, the contractor during the construction did not construct gutters that will ensure good drainage system when it rains which always causes flooding when it rains.
Moreover the contractor has for some time now flee from site, he therefore pleaded with government and the Minister of Roads and Highway to settle the contractor financially so that he can return to site for to complete the work.
Hon Philip Fokuo, the assembly member, also lamented that, the roof of the school building has been ripped off for about three months now.
Therefore the DCE and other stakeholders must come in to support the Jamera community to reroof the structure. He said that all his efforts to roof the building have proven futile as no response comes out from the appropriate authorities.
Some of the pupils of Jamera R/C Junior High School share their ordeal to saying that, they always go through hardship during rainy season since their school compound get flooded whenever it rains.
Also, the school building has set a death trap which compelled them to sit under trees during classes hours hence affecting their academics because they are forced to go home when they realized climate change that could lead to downpour.
