The authorities and workers of a school located in Madina West Zongo, within the Madina Constituency in Accra are reeling in fraustration over their MP, Francis-Xavier Sosu’s failure to pick their calls or pay for the services of a contractor he reportedly contracted to fix their gate for them.
Reports in the school have it that there is deep seated disappointment and resentment regarding the issue.
Insiders in the school are disappointed over the Madina MP’s( who is cooling off in the US) refusal to pick calls from the school authorities as well as the welder he contracted.
The issues are that, a welder who was contacted by the MP to provide the school, UMAR BUN KHATAB, with a new gate has long completed his work but has still not been paid and he has been harassing the school’s management.
All attempts to get the MP to pay for service of the person he contacted to provide the school with the gate has proved futile.
The worry of the school now is the continuous harassment of the school authorities for payment by the contractor.
According to him, he has been to the MP’ house on countless occasions, but to no avail, neither would the people in the house tell him the MP is out of the country.
Several attempts by the school authorities to get in touch with the MP on the matter have fallen on deaf ears.
This issue, according to school authorities, is affecting academic performance because the welder goes to the school ostensibly to disturb the peace of the students, thereby distracting academic activities in the school.
They are, therefore, calling on the members of the National Democratic Congress NDC (NDC) in Madina to help talk to the MP to resolve the issue as soon as practicable.
